Amazing private life of insects
• Amazing private life of insects
As a rule, we are touched when we see the bill and coo to each other cats or dogs, touching the slopes to each other swans or caring penguins. But the personal life is in insects! Photographer Dino Martins suggest you look at the bill and coo beetles, bees, butterflies and many other representatives of the entomological world.
Bees. Most species of bees in the world are loners, unlike honeybees. Females of the species leading a solitary lifestyle, the night returned to their nests, while males spend the night under the open sky among the leaves, or grass. Sometimes, to keep warm, bees, males spend the night, huddled close to each other. This photograph shows two males of different species of bees: Bee Bee Amegilla right and left Tetraloniella. They are closely huddled together, sitting on a blade of grass under an acacia tree.
It looks like a typical mating ritual damselflies found in the western part of the Serengeti. The male holds the female by the scruff. In fact, she is forced to lay her eggs, keeping to himself the whole weight of the male.
Wasp trio. In this photo - Trio digger wasps. Two males were trying to carry out the pairing with a single female, who tried in vain to get rid of their annoying courtship.
Ants there is a wonderful symbiosis with bedbugs. Ants bugs defending against parasites, while the bugs secrete a special secret, which is used by ants as food. This photograph shows the ants, "milking" of bedbugs.
It turns out that among the fauna are also many scams. Bezzhalnaya tiny bee is not able itself to collect pollen from the flower because it requires considerable force - the insect is specifically compresses the flower core, releasing pollen. That is why bezzhalnaya bee waits until all the hard work for her perform bee Nomia, then to use the results of its efforts.
The most passionate love relationships in nature are, of course, the relationship linking bees and flowers. Bees carry pollen, pollinating plants. The photo - Bee Gronocera on Mexican sunflower.
In this picture captures bee Amegilla, approaching a flower. Pollination is actually happening is not so simple. Bees close to the colors of a particular angle, so that the process was successful.
Only if a bee lands on a flower at a particular angle, it will be able to reach the pollen and nectar collected.
