I am too excited by the babies coming to sit on these. Look at these brand new precious butterfly babies. All these photos were taken TODAY.

More baby pictures! Top photo was last night (April 25th) before I went to bed, bottom photo was this morning (April 26) before I left for work. Didn’t bring the babies with me because I have a long day and I don’t think I can bring a mason jar full of larvae into a concert with me, so I made sure to fill the jar with fresh hackberry leaves because BABIES ARE HUNGRY!!!

nanonaturalist:

Went on an archaeology field trip in McDade for a master naturalist class, and we only spent 45 min actually looking for pottery because you can’t take 20 naturalists into the woods without them all constantly stopping to photograph and ID every living thing they see.

Had to take screenshots of all the photos to remove gps tags–the location of archaeology sites is Super Secret.

The Malay Red Harlequin is a butterfly found in the rainforests of peninsular Malaysia, Sumatra and Borneo. This particular individual was photographed in Gunung Palung National Park in Indonesia’s West Kalimantan province on the island of Borneo. Gunung Palung National Park is today an island of forest amid a largely deforested landscape.

There more than 2,500 species of butterflies found in tropical Asia.

Wide-jawed Viciria caring her eggs

Scientifically named Viciria praemandibularis (Salticidae), this jumping spider is, by obvious reasons, commonly known as Wide-Jawed Viciria, and can be found in Singapore and Sulawesi.

As you can see in the pictures, this female Wide-jawed viciria is caring her eggs. In the Salticidae spiders maternal care of eggs and recently hatched juveniles appears to be widespread. Salticids spin silken eggsacs and stay with these, presumably guarding them. Exactly what salticid females guard against and how they guard the eggs is unclear, but the maternal female could probably deter many egg predators and parasitoids.
