Catching up Jeff Corwin, Nick Baker, Sir David Attenborough on the tele was a my daily routine during the time when i was jobless. exploring the forest in long sleeves and long pants, documenting the life undergrowth! thus was dream. i'm glad i'm fulfilling a small portion of my dream for a naturalist, "collecting" specimens in photographing them. thanks to Masked Rider!
if we and the rest of the backbone animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. but if they were to disappear, the land's ecosystems would collapse. the soil would lose its fertility. many of the plants would no longer be pollinated. lots of animals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals would have nothing to eat. and our fields and pastures would be covered with dung and carrion. these small creatures are within a few inches of our feet, wherever we go on land- but often, they're disregarded. we would do very well to remember them. -Sir David Attenborough-
for every naturalists' lifelong contribution, i salute the naturalists for i had my enjoyment in my life.
For most i embrace the abundance life of tropical country for co-existing with such amazing creatures.
many might formulate the mind that insects/bugs are puny little being that most disregarded, in fact, they're much more intelligent than you think.
and this dedicated mother devoted her life in guarding her youngs, female jumping spider (Salticidae) with half-hatched eggs.
a jumping spider (Salticidae) foraging for prey.
Common Garden Spider (Parawixia Dehaani), when it feels threaten, it retracts its legs close to the body like this, or drop to the ground and play dead.
Green Huntsman Spider (Micrommate Virescens) doesn't build a web and hunts insects in green vegetation, where it is well camouflaged.
but none of which spiders' camouflaged beat this female Jumping Spider (Phaeacius sp.)
beside camouflage, an odd ball below hunt in an amazing technique, it catches prey with a sticky silk globe, more it can change the smell of the silk globe to attract different preys. video link
the Bolas Spider (Cladomelea Debeeri) an unusual orb weaver that does not spin the typical web.
the ant mimic-spider (Myrmarachne Sp.)
and recently, i'd documented a praying mantis, such fascinating camouflage!
these beautiful life undergrowth are such brilliant creatures adapt to survive creatively, please stop destroying their habitats, their home.
