🐞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 ...
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.

🐸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... 🐸
