The fully grown nymph emerges from the water, molts into subimago and about ten hours layer molts into an adult. In the tropics adult emerge asyncrhonously and essentialy throughout the year, in temperate regions adults emerge simultaneasly and at specific time of the year.
🕷Spiders usually produce an unpleasant feeling and rejection in most people, but if we start to know them a little more, surely our perception of these living beings will be slowly being replaced by respect and admiration.
🕸There are spiders with "maternal instincts" that care for their eggs, some even carry them wherever they go in a kind of bag they weave called ootheca. Other species, once the offspring born and until they grow up and become independent, move them on their bodies.
🕸We can also think of their magnificent fabrics, some of them with almost perfect, orbicular, structures, including some of exceptional sizes, especially when compared to the size of whoever builds them.
🦋Have you ever wondered what would become of our planet Earth without insects? Without them, many of the other beings of the animal kingdom would not have what to eat, birds for example are mostly insectivorous. Insects pollinate a vast majority of plants that produce seeds, they also recycle nutrients, they enrich the soil and take advantage of corpses and dung.
🦋Small in size, but with a number of individuals estimated at several millions of millions on the planet's surface, they generate an extraordinary impact, contributing to the functioning of ecosystems in a colossal way.
🦋They not only provide essential ecosystem services, but we also take advantage of various products they produce, such as silk, honey, wax, medicine and dyes.
🐸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...
Declining amphibian populations is a global phenomenon. Amphibians are currently considered the most threatened group of vertebrates on the planet, which are suffering some of the largest extinctions in the world.
The main causes are a combination of local and global factors and all can be attributed to human impacts on the environment that directly or indirectly cause a loss of forest quality and thus its vital functions, as the climate change, destruction and transformation of habitats, introduction of non-native species, farming practices and in the last decades a new threat was added: the irruption of emerging diseases such as chytridiomycosis and Ranavirus, which can cause the disappearance of populations in a few months. Chytridiomycosis is an infectious disease that affects amphibians around the world. It is caused by the chytrid fungus (Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis).
This silent killer has slaughtered amphibians around the world, for decades. In the 1980s it started to devastate frog populations worldwide. It is considered the greatest catastrophe of biodiversity in terms of disease, in our history.
The world of ants, numerous incidentally, takes on earth about 100 million years. Since those times ants lived in nests thermally regulated, cultivated mushrooms, cared for other insects to obtain feeding from them and were able to form rafts to avoid drowning in the floods.
The leafcutter ants practice "agriculture" to feed, but also have been associated with bacteria that keep their cultures free of parasites or fungi.
In a complex world, there are links between different species some of which are manifested in relations of mutual cooperation (mutualism). For example, we can find some groups of ants that "undertook" the way of security exchange for food. This close and indispensable benefit allowed a group of ants to feed on a secretion provided by greenflies, offering security in return.
Other ants establish mutualistic relationships with some plants. Ants can get housing and food from plants (sometimes extra-floral nectar rich in nutrients) and, in turn, protect the plant from the attack by herbivores.
A few ants have developed the ability to "weave" their nests among the leaves of the trees keeping them together with their own silk, allowing them, in turn, to develop huge colonies.
The so-called fire ants developed a striking survival strategy face of adversity. Social animals have the advantage of being able to work together to overcome the disadvantages of their changing environment. These ants face intense periodic rains that often devastate their nests. In response to these environmental changes they developed the ability to self-assemble intertwining their bodies to form rafts and bridges. They couple with each other by generating air bubbles, distributing weight and creating a light and floating structure. A boat that can accommodate millions of passengers and allow them to survive for months to make landfall in a safe place, build it in just seconds and can repair itself.
Leafhopper is the common name for any species from the family Cicadellidae. These minute insects, colloquially known as hoppers, are plant feeders that suck plant sap from grass, shrubs, or trees. Their hind legs are modified for jumping, and are covered with hairs that facilitate the spreading of a secretion over their bodies that acts as a water repellent and carrier of pheromones. Some species have a cosmopolitan distribution, or occur throughout the temperate and tropical regions. The family is distributed all over the world, and constitutes the second-largest hemipteran family, with at least 20,000 described species. 🐞🐜🕷🦗🦋🕷🦗🐞🐜🐝 #insectguru#beautiful_insects_japan#invert_macro#macro_turkey#top_macro#macroworld_tr#macro_highlight#macro_freaks#macro_perfection#Arthropod_Perfection#gf_macro#turklikeben_macro#exclusive_world_macro#soulmademacro#macro_captures_#magicmacroworld#uwn_insect#raw_insects#galeri_makro#gf_macro#wholelottabugs#nuts_about_wildlife#Episode1_macro#natureinfocus#biosapiens#insects_of_our_world#EarthCapture#SnagNation#macro_alit...
