Amblypygi is an ancient order of arachnid chelicerate arthropods aka whip spiders. These fascinating creatures are found in tropical and subtropical regions worldwide. They prefer warm and humid environments such as caves.

Although scary looking, they're actually quite harmeless. Indeed, amblypygids possess no silk glands or venomous fangs and are therefore not dangerous to humans. Nevertheless, if threatened, they can quite painfully grab ones fingers with their pedipalps, resulting in thorn-like puncture injuries! I personally have handled many of them without ever getting bitten or crabbed 😊

Copiopteryx jehovah, the South-American giant Silkmoth (Lepidoptera: Saturniidae) was discovered by an American hobby entomologist Herman Strecker in 1874. Strecker, a sculptor by profession, named and described 251 butterflies and moths.

Choeradodis is a genus of praying mantises with common names such as leaf mantis, hood mantis, or shield mantis because of their flattened, extended prothorax (first segment of thorax). This particular adaptation (among others) is for the purpose of camouflage aiding its leaf mimicry. These fascinating creatures can be found in neotropic ecozones of Americas and in respective regions in India.

A pair of common brimstones (Gonepteryx rhamni) - a little reminder of Estonian summer.
Did You know that common brimstone is one of the longest-lived butterflies? Indeed, imagoes of this species can live as long as thirteen months! Although, there is a catch: most of this time is spent in hibernation.
Another fun fact: some believe that name"butterfly" may have originated from Gonepteryx rhamni. In particular, early British naturalists supposedly used to call this butterfly a butter-coloured fly.

Agrias narcissus is a nymphalid butterfly inhabiting neotropical rain forests. The genus is perhaps the most popular (sought after) and most discussed group of Neotropical butterflies, together with the famous Morphos (of course!). These insanely ornamented creatures are the focus of a "cult" as are the Birdwings of the Oriental or the Parnassids of the Palearctic Region. It has been suggested that their biology remains "obscured" to some largely because of the "sub-economy" with which they are associated. People, not concerned with their collecting value argue fiercly about the number of species the genus contains. It is a matter of great honor to discover yet another Agrias species "new" to science! The harsh truth, however, is that there are many more names than there are species - perhaps about 400 names and only 4-6 good species. How can that be, You ask? Well, the point is that the Agrias butterflies are some of the most variable butterflies we know! The potential for their phenotypic variation is virtually endless and because the butterflies are themselves uncommon and largely unknown as to their distributions, antrpomorphic licence abounds and all manner of mischief is wrought in the name of science (Bernard D'Abrera 1984). #agrias #agriasnarcissus #guyane #frenchguiana #butterfly #insect #nature #science #diversity #biology #breathtaking #conservation #education #kawaii #lovebutterflies #art #sustainable #awreness #design #decor #home #love #spirit #biophilia #amazingcolor #protect #life on #earth #imagination_squared #unitartu

The green swallowtail (Papilio blumei) is a strikingly beautiful butterfly of the family Papilionidae. It is endemic to Sulawesi area in Indonesia.
For years the structural coloration of Papilio blumei has been subject of scientific studies in order to create unforgeable bank notes and more efficient solar cells.

A ventral view of an interesting-looking (tropical) lycaenid. There are about 6000 species of Lycaenidae (ca 30% of all butterflies) worldwide. The majority of them have associations with ants that can be facultative or obligate and and range from mutualism (i.e Plebejus spp) to parasitism (Phengaris spp). Chemical or visual camouflage is often used to establish and maintain these relationships. In some cases, however, the underwing patterns may be highly cryptic to deter potential predators. What do You think this butterfly resembles the most?

Upper and underside view of Prepona laertes, one of the fastest flying butterflies I've ever seen! They are extremely shy and vary and not particularly common.

A view from Ile Royale to the Devil's Island.
Salvation's Islands (Iles du Salut) are a group of three small volcanic islands (Devil's island, Ile Royale and Saint-Joseph Island) off the coast of French Guiana. They were a part of a notorious penal colony from 1852-1953.
The islands were featured in the novel Papillon, by Henry Charriere who was imprisoned there for 9 years.
For cinema afficcionados, I recommend watching a movie adaptation (Papillon, 1973) of the novel starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman.

Sunset in Kaw Mountains, French Guiana. The majority of beautiful creatures You have seen on my page come from this untouched paradise on earth!

According to Brule & Touroult (2014), French Guiana is home to 100000 insect species. An estimated 80% of these species remain to be recorded and, in a best-case scenario, at least 270 years would be needed to complete the biotic inventory, at the current rate of species descriptions and distribution records.

This magnificent cave provided a perfect shelter from the elements while exploring the depths of Amazon rainforest.
As I was discovering species I had never seen before, and had an amazing time relaxing at the campfire, I couldn't help but realize that I had arrived in a paradise... #Amazon #rainforest #jungle #cave #discover #campfire #love #frenchguyana #nature #protect #life on #earth #wilderness #tropical #paradise #amazingnature #biophilia #home #imagination_squared #insect #bestplacesonearth #solitude #science #relax #fun #unitartu
