  • ....... ...... It was like hide and seek for 5 hours between the forest department team and a leopard who has entered a crops field in a jaipur village. Leopard couldn't be traced because of big crops. The beast injured 3 villagers before being tranquilized. .

  • Reconhece esse inseto? Este é um representante da Ordem Mantoidea, popularmente conhecidos como louva-deus, põe-mesa, pai-de-cobra, bendito e cavalinho-do-nosso-senhor.

São insetos hemimetábolos terrestres, e podem variar de 8 a 170 mm de comprimento. São predadores solitários e sua alimentação baseia-se em presas vivas, predominantemente outros insetos. Algumas espécies maiores também podem predar pequenos vertebrados.

Para escapar de predadores, o louva-deus usa a camuflagem como recurso de proteção, confundindo-se com a vegetação, passando assim despercebido. Também podem possuir outros comportamentos de defesa como correr, saltar ou voar. 
Uma curiosidade, é que em espécies de regiões temperadas pode ocorrer a androfagia, no qual a fêmea pode devorar o macho durante a cópula ou acasalamento, como forma de obter mais suplementação alimentar para aumentar sua eficiência reprodutiva.

Just like a tiny, green cat. Praying mantis are very clean little insects. They wash in a very cat-like fashion, paying close attention their legs and antennae.

  • Recover. How many times will you recover after a setback? How many times will stand up when you’ve been knocked down? Don’t give. Stick your hand up and say, “Yes, I’m good to go another round”

  • AVIAN Azure 😍💙😍💙😍 Feathers are defo one of the WTF-HOW-DOES-THIS-EXIST elements of nature no?! °
This exquisite patterning belongs to one of our cheekiest & most intelligent feathered fellas. But what makes a feather blue? Colouration in the bird world is a crazy subject.
°
Most birds get their plumage colours from pigments...
. 🦉 If your bird is a grey, black or brown jobby – the pigments in their feathers will be melanins. These pigments are quite strong, and give feathers a structural sturdiness. White feathers (completely lacking melanin) are much weaker, which is why you don’t often see birds with white flight feathers!
. 🦜If the bird’s a bit jazzier, and shows reds, oranges or yellows – the pigments will be carotenoids. These pigments are gathered from a birds diet and processed into the feathers – the most famous example being the diet of algae and shrimp that causes pinkness of flamingos. . 🐦🦚 And then we get to blue…BLUE in birds is different. If you take a red/yellow/orange bird’s feather, and grind it down, you’ll be left with a red/yellow/orange dust. If you take a blue feather and do the same – the resulting powder will be grey. Rather than being caused by a pigment, the blue colour of feathers in birds is entirely structural! Tiiiiiiiiiiiiny structures of keratin and air pockets cause light to scatter. Red and yellow light is cancelled out, and blue light is reinforced! °
There's soooo much awesome evolutionary science behind pretty colours - it's awesome. This example here happens to be my favourite colour in the world. I bet you can guess which blue-accessorising bird it belonged to?

  • Over the years evolution has perfected flight in birds. These Brown Boobys have not only perfected the art of flying they are also master divers.
.
Boobys feed on a diet of fish and squid displaying mesmerising acrobatics as they dive into the water to catch them. Boobys can dive from a height of 100m hitting speeds of 60pmh just before they hit the water.
.
To protect their brains from the pressure as they hit the water Boobys have evolved special air sacs in their skulls.
.
Boobys have also learnt to adapt to life with humans. Often seen flying alongside boats capturing the fish as they flee the boats’ path.

  • Tag a friend who loves flowers 🌺🌸. Sometimes a simple flower can have so much definition and texture by adding just a little bit of water.

  • |Passion!|
I advocate for growth.
Spiritually, emotionally any growth you'd seek to have for your good.
The flourishing of a plant,enough to bear fruit is growth I seek...and hope for anyone.

  • Imagine a Cheetah cub without its mother in the wild, facing all the elements by itself: lonely & full of fear. That’s the story of Sasha, who was found as a six-month-old cub on a farm close to the Botswana border. A concerned farmer wanted to find help for Sasha – who was believed to have an injured leg caused by an encounter with a wildebeest. Eventually, he was handed over to a vet & with the help of Endangered Wildlife Trust put in a rewilding program for cheetahs – but without success. Unfortunately, despite attempts to save his leg, Sasha lost one of his hind legs. Amputation was the only way he could live without constant pain. Now Sasha is in the care of @four_paws_international & lions as his final refuge. 🐱
