"Tanto en sus fotografías como en sus obras pictóricas, Bandurek se destaca por su agudeza visual y sensibilidad para retratar el mundo natural. Si hay algo llamativo en la obra fotográfica de Cynthia Bandurek es la sensibilidad que tiene para encontrar la belleza en lo pequeño, sumada a la ductilidad con la que capta el instante, el detalle. Posee un sentido único que le permite prestar atención a aquello que no todos vemos, potenciado por la pasión que le despierta la naturaleza"

(Natividad Marón. La Voz Joven)

The magic of rainforest at night💛  Remember.. dont manipulate amphibians when you are out taking pictures, their skin is highly permeable and they are vulnerable to toxics. Imagine when you are in the middle of the jungle probbably you are full of OFF or some  insect repellent to try to avoid mosquitos and other insect bites.. and you can transfer the toxics to frogs... just we always need put #naturefirst before photography...🐸#turklikeben_macro #amphibians #photographerfocus #magicmacroworld #nuts_about_nature #macro_brilliance #nuts_about_wildlife  #macro_freaks  #macro_captures #macro_perfection #macrogrammers #makrofotografie #earthcapture #invert_macro #natgeo #small_world_upclose #macro_vision #yourshotphotographer  #bbcearth #macro_highlight #amazon #igbest_macros #nature_brilliance #nature_sultans  #nuts_about_macro

In this design trial, Nature allowed some toxic, biting or poisonous insects, to have bright colors and flashy designs; these are warning colors, a strategy called aposematism. Instead of going unnoticed, they warn potential predators that they are preys unpleasant to eat, with bad tastes or poisons. Eventually, predators learn that some combination of colors produces an unpleasant experience, and then they avoid repeating it. Bold, bright colors, like a traffic light, mark danger and need to stop. To save a card for when the game requires it, is a cunning worthy not only of human beings. The term flash coloring refers to the resource some animals have, to try to disorient a potential predator making visible a drawing or striking pattern that usually remains hidden. This action can be observed in some butterflies, which have designs on their wings that emulate large eyes, pretending to be part of an individual of colossal dimensions, at this relationship of scales. The reverse process of gradually hiding when facing the possible situation of becoming prey, overshadowing colors or displaying a less noticeable part of the body, is called color fading.  #insect #macrophotography #uwn_insect #natureinfocus#arthropod_perfection #kings_insects  #macrogrammers#picoftheday #wildlifephotography #macro #turklikeben_macro #macro_perfection  #insectguru#ip_insects #macro_alit#macro_highlight #invert_macro#macro_brilliance #1macroshot#wholelottabugs #beautiful_insects_japan #earthcapture @bbcearth #top_macro#flowersandmacro  #soulmademacro#macro_captures #macrotophy #nuts_about_macro

Leaf hopper - Cicadellidae with a cryptic coloration  In this race for survival, some of our players developed the ability to go unnoticed both to their predators, in some cases, as to their preys, in others. This capability, which allows them to complete their life cycle to many of them, is called crypsis or cryptic coloration, and gives the individual the power to blend in with their surroundings.  Such capability has amazing variants. There are individuals who can resemble objects from their own surrounding area, which is called homomorfía (same form, same shape). Others can take advantage of the colorful environment to take from them identical visual patterns, such property is described under the name of homocromía (same color). Another strategy that works to the same end is to have patterns of spots that allow them to conceal the contours, called disruptive coloration. These possibilities are expressed in a wide range of faboulous intermediate and extremes, and can lead the likeness to such degrees of similarity that we can not distinguish the individual from its environment.  #insect #macrophotography #uwn_insect #natureinfocus#arthropod_perfection #kings_insects  #macrogrammers#picoftheday #wildlifephotography #macro #turklikeben_macro #macro_perfection  #insectguru#ip_insects #macro_alit#macro_highlight #invert_macro#macro_brilliance #1macroshot#wholelottabugs #beautiful_insects_japan #earthcapture @bbcearth #top_macro#flowersandmacro  #soulmademacro#macro_captures #macrotophy #nuts_about_macro

Survival in the natural world has always proved to be a complex task, generating enormous creative potential; it has been the architect of unusual strategies and adaptations.  The diversity and the most varied relationships of forms are the result of their interactions with the environment and their various situations. This constant and never ending race of living beings to dispute a place in the conquest of life has enabled Nature to unfold infinite variants in every situation, since time rushes inexorably on the path of evolution. The astronomical number of individuals allows an unimaginable source of tests, proofs, errors and successes to the most varied problems. An infinite laboratory led by virtually tiny forms anticipates the creation of  all possible inventions, either imagined or to be discovered. That is why insects were able to build condominiums with air conditioning, build acoustic equipment, make paper, take slaves, cultivate gardens, breed other animals, create their own oxygen tanks to breathe under water and cause explosions, among many other amazing adaptations, ahead of many human inventions.Extract of my book: “The world of small." An approach to the universe of arthropods from an artistic, visual and evolutionary perspective.By Cynthia Bandurek  #insect #macrophotography #uwn_insect #natureinfocus#arthropod_perfection #kings_insects  #macrogrammers#picoftheday #wildlifephotography #macro #turklikeben_macro #macro_perfection  #insectguru#ip_insects #macro_alit#macro_highlight #invert_macro#macro_brilliance #1macroshot#wholelottabugs #beautiful_insects_japan #earthcapture @bbcearth #top_macro#flowersandmacro  #soulmademacro#macro_captures #bns_macro#macro_freaks
