The Milionia Drucei is the 28th species of my original imaginary bowtie collection, launched on May 22nd 2019 (International Day of Biological Diversity) to pay tribute to the extraordinary beauty of biodiversity found in nature. This bowtie collection will feature 32 more awesome butterflies, photographed in studio conditions, attempting to harmoniously match the most appropriate color background to each butterfly’s dominant hue.

As a French-speaking nature photographer, I cannot take credit for having made the association between bowties and butterflies alone, since bowties are called “nœuds papillon” in French, translating literally into “butterfly knots.” I have been in awe of nature for as long as I can remember—hence, as a photographer, I wish to contribute to conservation efforts by producing visually pleasing images, related one way or another to fauna and flora, in the hope of convincing the viewers that it is vital to protect all species for generations to come. Jacques Yves Cousteau could not have worded it better: “People protect what they love,” so let us celebrate Biodiversity in style!

It's #PollinatorWeek! While flying insects may be the most common pollinators, many other animals are important pollinators as well. The critically endangered black-and-white ruffed lemur (Varecia variegata) is the world's largest pollinator, according to @u.s.forestservice. They are the main pollinators of the traveller's tree or traveller's palm (Ravenala madagascariensis). When sticking their snouts and tongues into the tree's flowers to obtain nectar, the lemurs collect pollen on their muzzle and fur, which is then transported to the next flower.

I'm simple, I don't need many stuff, I don't need fancy unnecessary stuff.
But I do want to help to reduce the rubbish in the planet.
So I cook my own lunch, with organic-farmed ingredients and take it to school in my reusable (no plastic) containers.
My lunch bag is a tote bag my mam made for my bridal shower (with a lot of beautiful messages from guests), and I wrap thespoon in my cloth napkin, I feel no need for a spoon bag.
Bon appétit !!! ☺️

Soy simple, no necesito muchas cosas, no necesito cosas innecesarias.
Pero sí quiero ayudar a reducir la basura en el planeta.
Así que preparo mi propio lonche, con ingredientes de agricultura orgánica y lo llevo a la escuela en mis contenedores reutilizables (sin plástico).
Mi bolsa para el lonche es una bolsa de tela que mi mamá hizo para mi despedida de soltera (con muchos mensajes hermosos de las invitadas), y envuelvo mi cuchara en una veo necesidad de una bolsa especial para ello.
Provechito!!! ☺️

The Milionia Drucei is a genus of moths in the family Geometridae, and there are no common names associated with this taxon. First described by Butler in 1883, it inhabits the Indo-Australian region, more particularly in the highlands of Papua New Guinea, the Island of Sulawesi, east of Borneo, Indonesia, and other islands of the Celebes Sea. This day-flying moth displays a striking combination of iridescent metallic blue and orange. The black-looking wings are actually midnight blue. There are large spots of cobalt-blue close to the base of the wings, as well as parts the head, legs,  antennae, and mostly purplish body.  The wings are crossed in the middle by an unusual deep-orange belt. Its wingspan is around 7 centimeters.

I have been in awe of nature for as long as I can remember—hence, as a photographer, I wish to contribute to conservation efforts by producing visually pleasing images, related one way or another to fauna and flora, in the hope of convincing the viewers that it is vital to protect all species for generations to come.

La realidad invasiva de la selva le obligó a replantear su intención inicial y finalmente sucumbió a la tentación de coleccionar 104 tipos diferentes de hojas encontrados en esos 5m2 de investigación. Esta colección, lejos de ser un mero capricho posesivo, se convirtió en el símbolo de la riqueza y diversidad presente en la selva del Chocó. Ya en Bogotá, las hojas, metidas cada una en tubos individuales habían perdido su frescura y poco a poco, el proceso imparable de descomposición nos habla de la inevitable desaparición de la vida, una vez ésta es arrancada de su medio natural.  Fragmento del blog escrito por nuestra querida Caridad Botella, a propósito de la residencia artística de Robert Lippok y Peter Ruehle, en Guachalito (Chocó).

#NationalPollinatorWeek 🦋 In the spring and fall, monarch butterflies travel north and south between Canada and Mexico. These butterflies rely on milkweed for survival along the way. It is the only plant on which they lay their eggs and only source of food for baby caterpillar. But urban planning and agricultural expansion have paved and plowed over millions of acres of milkweed. You can help these amazing butterflies by planting the right species of milkweed at home. 🌎🇺🇸🐼⚔️🛡 _______________________________________________________

Dopasia gracilis - Vietnam.
This is not a snake, but a legless lizard. Commonly called the Asian glass lizard, maybe for its tendency to detach its tail from the body if threatened. This specimen was about 40cm long.

Los murciélagos, temidos por muchos y queridos por pocos, son importantes especies para conservar nuestra salud...
🦇🌳
Podría sonar paradójico, pero estos pequeñines son importantes controladores biológicos de insectos, si, comen insectos, frutas, flores, néctar y si, también comen sangre de mamíferos, especialmente de los mamíferos en rebaño, PERO, de poco más de 140 especies que existen en el país, solo 3 son hematófagos, es decir que se alimentan de sangre 🦇🌳
Estos pequeñines habitan bosques y se cree  estaban controladas las poblaciones, hasta la llegada de los rebaños de bovinos, donde al tener una fuente directa de alimentación fue casi la oportunidad perfecta para reproducirse.. 🦇🌳
En la foto tenemos un ejemplar de Moloso moloso, ejemplar insectívoro que se caracteriza por tener una pequeña separación casi imperceptible entre las orejitas, un trago pronunciado, 4 dientitos incisivos MÍNIMOS!!! Usamos una lupa para poder verlos, y lo más característicos una colita que sobrepasa por unos pocos centímetros su cuerpo...
🦇🌳
Viven en colonias, donde exista mayor disponibilidad de comida tengan disponible para su sobrevivencia, yyyyy los encontramos en nuestros espacios cuando cambiamos sus bosques por ciudades...
🦇🌳
Recuerda, piénsalo dos veces antes de lastimar a algún animal silvestre que encuentres y ubica personas que te puedan ayudar con conocimientos sobre especies silvestres....

Countdown to opening on Friday evening of Legacy of Loss with Laura Beard at Riverfront Renaissance Center for the Arts in Millville New Jersey. This is a Mountain Gorilla. Males are also known as Silverbacks. Their habitat is now reduced to two tiny spots in the vast expanse of African jungle. Civil War, poaching, and human expansion have all affected these magnificent primates. #primates #primatesanctuary #gorilla #mountaingorillas #animalart #animalconservation #biodiversity #jerseyart #njart #NJartist #worldwildlifefederation #janegoodall #audobonsociety

O bioma Cerrado está sob ameaça. 🛰

No nosso artigo recentemente aceito e publicado na revista Geophysical Research Letters, encontramos evidências de que aproximadamente 19% do bioma Cerrado (remanescente, ou seja, que não foi desmatado ainda) está ocorrendo o processo de “woody encroachment”. Essa porcentagem pode ser até maior, pois analisamos apenas 15 anos de dados de sensoriamento remoto.

O “woody encroachment” refere-se a expansão de formações florestais em áreas tipicamente de savana, aumentando a biomassa e mudando a composição da vegetação. Esse processo é ameaçador para a biodiversidade do Cerrado, uma vez que a nossa savana é um dos locais com maior biodiversidade do mundo. Mais de 50% do bioma já foi desmatado pela expansão da agricultura e o que restou tem apresentado esse fenômeno. Esse fenômeno é decorrente, principalmente, de mudanças de práticas de uso da terra e dinâmica das queimadas em sinergia com as mudanças climáticas globais, como o aumento do CO2 na atmosfera.

Se queremos conservar a vegetação nativa desse local que é reconhecido como a savana com maior biodiversidade do mundo, precisamos agir, cobrando políticas públicas e também investimentos em estudos que auxiliem essas políticas. Mais estudos precisam ser desenvolvidos, tanto utilizando dados de sensoriamento remoto (imagens de satélite), bem como medições em campo.

O bioma Cerrado está sob ameaça. 🛰

No nosso artigo recentemente aceito e publicado na revista Geophysical Research Letters, encontramos evidências de que aproximadamente 19% do bioma Cerrado (remanescente, ou seja, que não foi desmatado ainda) está ocorrendo o processo de “woody encroachment”. Essa porcentagem pode ser até maior, pois analisamos apenas 15 anos de dados de sensoriamento remoto.

O “woody encroachment” refere-se a expansão de formações florestais em áreas tipicamente de savana, aumentando a biomassa e mudando a composição da vegetação. Esse processo é ameaçador para a biodiversidade do Cerrado, uma vez que a nossa savana é um dos locais com maior biodiversidade do mundo. Mais de 50% do bioma já foi desmatado pela expansão da agricultura e o que restou tem apresentado esse fenômeno. Esse fenômeno é decorrente, principalmente, de mudanças de práticas de uso da terra e dinâmica das queimadas em sinergia com as mudanças climáticas globais, como o aumento do CO2 na atmosfera.

Se queremos conservar a vegetação nativa desse local que é reconhecido como a savana com maior biodiversidade do mundo, precisamos agir, cobrando políticas públicas e também investimentos em estudos que auxiliem essas políticas. Mais estudos precisam ser desenvolvidos, tanto utilizando dados de sensoriamento remoto (imagens de satélite), bem como medições em campo.

Je suis très heureux de représenter la ville de #boutigny91 aux #assisesnationalesdelabiodiversité à @paris_saclay où nous serons labellisés Territoires Engagés pour la Nature. 
Cette labellisation est le fruit d’un long travail collectif sur la ville où nous avons su capitaliser et aller plus loin que l’ambition initialement portée par nos prédécesseurs. Aujourd’hui, notre ville est reconnue à l’échelle de l’@iledefrance comme un territoire préservant et valorisant la biodiversité. C’est aussi une façon d’approfondir le travail effectué en partenariat avec des partenaires fiables comme @cdessonne où encore @villesetvillagesfleuris. Alors, on continue et encore plus fort!

[fr] PÉTITION : Appel à Mr Andry Rajoelina, président de Madagascar, pour la prise de mesures critiques pour protéger la biodiversité de Madagascar et lancer l'économie du pays sur une trajectoire durable. Pétition en lien, en savoir plus ci-dessous :
.
Naturevolution relaie la «Pétition d'Ivato» lancée par les 900 membres de l'Association pour la Biologie et la Conservation Tropicale (ATBC), dont la prochaine réunion se tiendra cet été à Antananarivo.
.
La pétition appelle le président à :
1) Lutter contre la criminalité environnementale.
2) Investir dans les aires protégées de #Madagascar.
3) Limiter les impacts sur la biodiversité des projets d’infrastructure.
4) Renforcer les droits sur les ressources naturelles des populations locales.
5) Gérer la crise croissante du bois de chauffe à Madagascar.
.
« L’engagement constant du gouvernement de Madagascar est essentiel. En l’absence de mesures urgentes, il sera bientôt trop tard pour sauver certains des habitats et des espèces les plus emblématiques de Madagascar, primordiaux pour le peuple et l’économie du pays. En progressant dans les cinq domaines indiqués dans ce document, le mandat du Président Rajoelina pourrait être marqué par des mesures pour sauver la biodiversité de Madagascar. »
.
Madagascar est un des rares pays au monde où la biodiversité est extrêmement unique (#endémique) et parmi la plus menacée au monde : Madagascar est dans le trio de tête des pays pour le nombre d'espèces animales et végétales menacées, et pour le taux de déforestation. Bref, il s'agit d'une urgence pour la #biodiversité. Merci de signer, et de partager/reposter.

Sometimes beneficial insects for our garden will prey each others, but nature is wise and the balance is always restored. Have you seen the crab spider? The bee didn't see it.

Today it’s World Refugee Day.
While picking a few wild strawberries in the studio garden, I was thinking that everyone should have the opportunity to pick fruit in her/his own garden or house.
No one should be a refugee.

Lavendel, Zitronenmelisse, Zitronenverbene, Salbei.....klar bin ich auch so ne Kräuterhexe. Jemand von euch beschrieb neulich auch schon mal, was sich damit alles tolles anstellen lässt. Für nächstes Jahr plane ich eine richtige Kräuterküche, wo ich reines Öl herstellen kann. Ihr könnt sie auch als kreatives Gebinde verwenden, als Gewürz, in Duftsäckchen gegen Motten, oder einfach als Deko. Passt herrlich zu shabby & co.
-----
Derzeit sind die Ringelblumen ausgesäht. Bilder folgen wenn es soweit ist. Daraus lassen sich wirklich heilsame Sachen machen. Ringelblumen sind auf vielfältige Weise sehr bereichernde Heilpflanzen. -----🌾🍃🌾

The “easiest” ways to tell Downy (left) from Hairy (right) woodpeckers is to check the white tail feathers for black spots (Downy) and beak length relative to head size (Downys have relatively shorter beaks). Otherwise, good luck.
.
We can’t see tail feathers on these two females in this photo, and relative beak length is tough to gauge when the birds themselves are different sizes. Fortunately these two fed together for a while and I got a good look - really low light and a slow lens made for lots of grainy photos though.  Send better glass.

Dill! Food is energy and medicine! Incorporating herbs into our diets helps us get many valuable nutrients for our bodies. Anything that benefits our physical body in turn supports out mental and spiritual wellbeing. I love growing my own herbs and saving the seeds to plant the next year. Dill is valuable because it has calcium, folate, magnesium, riboflavin, and vitamins A&C. Traditional Asian and Ayurvedic medicine use dill in large amounts (think over 2/3 cup) for healing many health issues. It can even help regulate a woman’s menstrual cycle! ⬇️See comment for more issues dill can help resolve ⬇️ I’ve only recently begun purposefully eating fresh herbs EVERYDAY. Growing my own has made this more affordable...herbs are so $$$ at the grocery! No wonder we typically don’t use them enough! How often do you incorporate herbs into your diet?

Horns, scales and dragon-like eyes are the trademark of one of the most beautiful adders of Africa. This is a close-up of the horned adder (Bitis caudalis) I photographed a few days ago close to Swakopmund, into the Dorob National Park. ~

At least 571 plant species have gone extinct in the past 250 years, according to a new report.
•
Numerically, this is twice as high as the number of birds, mammals and amphibians combined that have gone extinct in the same amount of time.
Although numerically high, this only represents approximately 0.2% of all known plant species on earth. The total number of birds, amphibians and mammals gone extinct in the last 250 years is far worse, percentage-wise, at 5% of the total known species.

Biodiversity is key to the survival of all life. Plants need animals and animals need plants. We must protect all life.
