Ah, the weekend. Ya get to leave off 🧦 & 👟👟 and let those beautiful toes "fly free." Should we move the quote marks to a few words prior 😂? Fenestraria aurantiaca (aka baby toes) has adapted to life in the ☀️. Each toe, er, leaf has a translucent window at the tip, and it is through this window that sunlight is filtered as part of photosynthesis.

In its native habitat, where the ☀️ can be blazing, often only these windows are visible above quartz sand.

Tapered Dronefly (Eristalis pertinax) | Co. Cork, Ireland | August 2019
.
Still plenty of these honeybee-mimics keeping me company at work. Irish country lanes seem remarkably good places to study hoverflies.

The "little sister" of the hornet hoverfly: Volucella inanis. 
The ecology is quite similar to V. zonaraia (see previous post). This species is mostly yellow under its abdomen while V. zonaria is mostly black/brown. Furthermore Volucella inanis has a yellowish coloured scutellum and all Tergites (segemnts of the abdomen from above) are coloured in yellow - V. zonaria in comparison has a brown/red coloured scutellum and not all tergites are coloured yellow, but T2 orange/red. I will post a picture of V. inanis as the next picture.  #hoverflies #hoverfliesofinstagram #hoverfliesoninstagram #schwebfliege #entomology #biodiversity #syrphidae #biology #mimicry #globalwarming #volucella #volucellazonaia #hymenoptera #hornet

Our biggest hoverfly here in Germany: the hornet hoverfly, Volucella zonaria. 
The hornet mimicry scares off potential predators. The larvae develop in the nests of wasps or hornets, but usually not usually in Germany (except in warmer regions), since it is a Mediterranean migratory species. In warmer years there are many flies travelling northwards, that is why there have been many sightings in the last years. This does not have to be because of global warming yet - it regularly does this when temperatures allow - but with a warming climate (on a longer term) it is a species that benefits.

It could possibly be confused with the smaller Volucella inanis, but when you know both they are quite good to differentiate.  Latter ist mostly yellow under its abdomen while V. zonaria is mostly black/brown.

Since the beginning of time these lime stone cliffs are home for plants and other terrestial organisms that are able to survive the steep, barren rock walls.
...
Leaves, branches and seeds are falling constantly into the ocean below and the marine life adapts to it.
...
Consequently diving these sites we find marine life that resembles pieces of wood or old leaves.
...
Robust ghost pipefish, juvenile Rigid shrimp fish, Double-ended pipefish, juvenile Teira batfish developed this breath-taking mimicry in response and are all highlight encounters for me. (Thailand, 2007)

One of my favorite #caterpillars the #GiantSwallowTail #Caterpillar is very unique. In its first instars the caterpillar looks like bird feces, that then in the last one it looks somewhat like a snakes head and when bothered will poke out its #osmeteria (horns) to not only produce an unpleasant sweet aroma, but also mimic a snakes tongue to further ward off would be predators.

So, a very few moments ago, I was tending some potted delights on the back patio....when I spotted this beautiful lady! In actuality, I first saw her as she was posed in the second image [swipe left]. But, I knew what was hidden underneath! And with some gentle nudging, her wings spread and revealed, what to a predator would be seen as these startling eyespots! Such a beautiful example of mimicry in nature! Her name is Io automeris. This moth is an example of a dimorphous group, and the male partner would be a bright yellow color, also displaying eyes upon the opening of his wings. You are welcome for the morning biology lesson! 😉

Mimetismo clássico do mundo animal 😍 Borboleta-olho-de-coruja, Caligo sp. (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae). Espécie peculiar pelo padrão de suas asas, que possuem um desenho similar ao rosto de uma coruja 🦉 Esta imitação é uma excelente tática de sobrevivência, pois mantêm distantes seus principais predadores 😉

This is a wasp mantidfly (Climaciella brunnea). As larvae, they are parasitic to spiders. Freshly hatched larvae will wait on leaves for their preferred host, a wolf spider, which they attach themselves to. The larvae feed on the blood of the spider until it lays eggs. Once the spider has laid eggs, the larvae crawl inside the egg sack before the spider covers it in silk, where they will feed on the eggs. Although they look like a wasp/praying mantis hybrid, they are not related to either, but mimic the markings of the venomous paper wasp.

Keeping a chick safe is one of the hardest parts of being an adult bird. However this bird has adapted an amazing way of keeping safe. The chick minics a caterpillar to stay safe. It even moves like the caterpillar. Predators know that the caterpillar is poisonious, what they don't know is the chick isn't. This is called Batesian mimicry. Seen mostly in invertebrates, it's almost unheard of in birds. .

Hey don't miss a chance to see her. She is cute, kiddo, childish and most importantly she is amazing.

She is a mimicry artist can produce lot many cartoon voices that can make you laugh 😂

This viceroy butterfly (Limenitis archippus) is feeding on Blazing star (Liatris spicata). Viceroys share the same color pattern as Monarchs to make it easier for predators to recognize bad taste when they see it. This is called Mullerian mimics. Viceroys are smaller and quicker than monarchs and have a horizontal vein on their hind wings that differentiates them from monarchs. The monarchs in the second picture are feeding on Joe-Pye Weed ( Eupatorium dubnium). Both Viceroys and Monarchs are unpalatable to birds.  #mimicry #viceroys #monarchbutterfly
