Did you know that if we join all the species of vertebrates on earth, we can get about 50000 species of them. And just the biodiversity of beetles, just Beetles, we have about 400000 named species of them, and there are thousands that we need to discover... 🐞 Arthropods are the most diverse group of animals on earth. with 1.3 million named species. The strategies they developed along the millions of years of evolution allow them to have great success. 🐞 Practically there is no place on earth where arthropods were unable to live. 🐞 But now they are in trouble just because of us, *Climate change, *Agrotoxics, *Water pollution, *Habitat loss, *Industrial pollution, *Light and noise pollution, *Biological factors, including pathogens and introduced species and *Overexploitation 🐞 And ironically if we think about all this things are killing us also! 🐞 I think it is time to rethink our relationship with nature... . . #wildlife #nature #naturephotography #ig_nature #ignature #nuts_about_nature #bns_nature #waycoolshots #na_natures_art #nature_brilliance #nature_perfection #nature_sultans #NatGeo #Nature #Naturaleza #naturephoto #natgeolatam #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeo_ar #naturelovers #naturephotography #naturelovers #natura #naturaleza #natgeocreative #naturelover_gr #photooftheday #natgeotravelphoto #natgeowild #travel...
Anyone who has met once a jumping spider will have realized that they seem to see us from the back. In these jumping spiders (family Salticidae) a peculiarity is given: they have four pairs of simple eyes (unlike the compounds eyes of insects), arranged in the front area and on both sides of the head, allowing them to have a visual field practically 360o. This extraordinary visual acuity is due largely to their two, characteristic, central large mobile eyes. This excellent vision serves them for hunting, as they are active hunters, which means they do not catch their preys by producing fabrics but lurk in search of food. But this visual feature is also essential for dating, where once the male finds its possible partner, it starts a complex dance spreading its front legs and abdomen with the sole aim to impress the female, while avoiding being eaten during copulation. Another feature of these spiders are their jumps (hence its name), not only forward but also sideways and backwards. The jump occurs as a result of an internal pressure of the hemolymph (equivalent to blood) which is discharged violently, while the eight legs energetically push.

When people want to preserve nature in general, they think about buying a piece of forest to preserve it. But here the challenge is bigger. They bought a piece of land completely destroyed because of caws and deforestation. And they are restoring and transforming the land again into a forest. Amazing right!

Did you know that the compound eyes of insects generally provide very poor image resolution, but they are superb motion detectors. Humans do not detect the individual frame of a movie when shown at 25 per second. But for insects, however, a movie would have to be shown at 200 frames per second to prevent them from despichering individual frames.And also most insect can not detect the color red, (which they percive as black) but unlike us they can see colors in the ultraviolet spectrum and can also detect the polarized light. Always amazing nature
🐸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... 🐸
👁💙 Frogs are among many species that have a third eyelid, or nictitating membrane. The membrane likely evolved to help the frog survive on land and in the water. It lubricates the eyes and provides a level of protection. The frog can raise the eyelid for extended periods of time to protect the eye from debris or other organisms. This is especially helpful during hibernation, when the frog may not be alert to imminent threats. Frogs pull up the the third eyelid during swimming to protect their eyes under water, much like the goggles you wear in the pool. .
