2. When male jumping spiders flirt with females, they risk losing their lives.

This is a mating dance, but she is not interested and he escapes with his life, because often females will eat their lover after sex.

1. Both predators and prey animals use camouflage to their advantage.

Prey animals blend in with the background, so hungry predators pass right by them.

🧵 Start of a thread with some amazing videos on #Camouflage.

I like this one. 🙂

2. But predators use camouflage too.

The striated frogfish (Antennarius striatus) walks the seafloor right up to its unsuspecting prey.

It has a prognathous mouth that launches an attack on prey in as fast as 6 milliseconds.

Yesterday's got a leucistic Jungle Babbler @ Ayodhya #IndiAves
In leucistic birds, affected plumage lacks melanin pigment due to the cells responsible for melanin production being absent. #birdwatching #nature #BirdsSeenIn2021 #BBCWildlifePOTD @Avibase @ThePhotoHour
2/n #IndiAves
This results in a white feathers, unless the normal plumage colour also comprises carotenoids (e.g. yellows), which remain unaffected by the condition. Although leucism is inherited, the extent and positioning of the white colouration
3/n #IndiAves
can vary between adults and their young, and can also skip generations if leucistic genes are recessive.
The reduction of pigment in leucistic birds causes feathers to weaken and be more prone to wear.

1. This is a Malaysian Dead Leaf Mantis.

One of the over 2,400 Mantis species.

This starts an interesting thread with some great mantis videos.

Stay tuned.

3/11. If you see an insect with a triangular head, bulging eyes, sitting upright with arms folded like in prayer, it is likely a ‘praying’ mantis.

Here is an example. It is not praying, but eating a bumblebee.

White-rumped Snowfinch (Onychostruthus taczanowskii) is one of the two species of Snowfinches that can be seen reliably in India only in the Tibetan Plateau region of North Sikkim, generally above 4500 meters (the other being Rufous-necked Snowfinch)
White-rumped Snowfinch associate very strongly with Black-lipped Pika or Plateau Pika , the most abundant mammal in this cold desert. Their burrows are used for nesting and also used for roosting, particularly by the juveniles.

Here is a Ground Tit, alongside a yak dung pat, from the cold plateau around Gurudongmar, North Sikkim.

Dung of large herbivores, particularly that of Domestic Yak has an important place in the grassland ecology of this high plateau. Dungs increases the abundance of arthropods particularly the larvae of coleopteran beetles which are consumed by a number of species of birds.
Many birds are often found close to areas with an abundance of dung pats. Ground Tits have long and curved beaks to probe into the dung pats and the soil around it for insects.

My #BirdsWithTalons long #Thread from Delhi. Seeing raptors around Delhi is a Joy. Each sighting is unique but not always gr8 wrt #photograghy

On a good day, they can be found up close

And there are days when they surprise me by visiting the fig tree just outside my house -like this Shikra which I clicked from my balcony.

But on some other days(should I call them bad days?) they are quite far. Like this Grey-headed fish eagle from Okhla & the Short-toed snake eagle from Mangar.

Asian Barred owlet #Thread

I have photographed (shared earlier here) a pair of Asian barred owlet earlier last month which I found in the backyard of my home in Assam in my recent visit in April.

#IndiAves #birds #birdwatching #BirdsSeenIn2021 #TwitterNatureCommunity Image
Today, my bother called me in the morning and told me that he found a chick at the bottom of a tree with a large hole. I ID the bird and he managed a bamboo 🪜 to place the chick in the hole. He noticed 2 more chicks there.

#IndiAves #BirdsSeenIn2021 #birdwatching ImageImage
While doing so he was attacked by one the parents. The hole was little wide at its mouth so we concluded that the chick came out of its own while crawling inside the hole.

C'est sûr que quand on tombe sur une #plante aussi magnifique et aussi rare que Ophrys speculum, on est vraiment émerveillé. Mais, magnifique ne veut pas dire forcément rare. Voici un petit aperçu en photos des autres #orchidées, plus communes, qu'on a vu ce jour la.
#ThreadPhoto
Toutes les photos ont été prises a Seyssinet-Pariset. On commence avec Orchis simia, qu'on avait déja vu en fleurs il y a une 10aine de jours.

Je viens de traiter quelques photos, je ne pouvais pas attendre pour vous montrer cette magnifique #orchidée !! Orchis speculum - Grenoble - France
Une espèce plutôt rare en France, et protégée car menacée.
@EuropeanOrchids #Orchids #wildflower #botany2021 #NaturePhotography
Cette #orchidée est spécifiquement pollinisée par une guèpe (Dasyscolia ciliata), qui est absente de France. La plante ne peut donc pas se reproduire, les populations sont donc très instables. Elles est notée en danger par @IUCN , et est protégée sur tout le territoire.

"Normal is an illusion .
What is normal for the spider is chaos for the fly".

Thereby meaning Context is everything . It is context that influences our thoughts & thereby the decision making. Hence one cannot generalise things for it is all subjective to many factors.

Metamorphosis

This photo juxtaposes the beautiful transition from a caterpillar to the butterfly.
We all need to go through periods of isolation & emerge from our cocoon with our own strength in order to become something in life.
Too much of help & we shall crumble

1/4 I am aware I have been away from here for a lot of this year, the ongoing pandemic certainly took me elsewhere. That elsewhere strongly resonated with my childless grief, the isolation, the disconnection, the loss, the high alert. Image
2/4 During the grief often it was all I could do to just function and get through the days. During the pandemic, on the whole, I have been able to recognise and be with my feelings and do things that helped me.
3/4 Which mostly involved being in nature, paying closer attention to my local area, noticing the wildflowers, the insects, the birds especially their songs. Over the next few weeks I will share some of the photos I have taken and any thoughts and feelings that resonate.

There's been so much hype about #Zanzibar, but at the same time, a few people weren't particularly thrilled. Had to go find out for myself ,so some friends and I planned a trip. What I think? Top rating for beaches, good food, so much to see, history. Read this thread... #Travel
From #DaresSalaam, you have the options of flying or going by ferry to #Zanzibar. On the other hand, you could fly directly there. We spent a few days in Dar, then we went by ferry...it cost $35 per person for economy and $50 per person for VIP. We travelled in the VIP section.
It takes 1hr30mins to get to Zanzibar by ferry. It could take longer when it's turbulent. The hotel we stayed in was an hour away from stone town. We stayed in Nungwi which is North of Zanzibar. #Travel #Africa #Tanzania #holidays
