Eastern Pondhawks (Erythemis simplicicollis), true to their name, are excellent and aggressive hunters. They prey on other insects, catching them in flight. They will even prey on insects as large as themselves including other species of dragonflies. This Pondhawk swooped across the path with lightning speed and snatched this Halloween pennant dragonfly (Celithemis eponina) out of the air. #nature_sultans #naturelover_gr #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macro_captures #macro_perfection #macroexperienice #macro_holic #best_macro #macro_in_bl #bns_macro #kings_insects #bpa_macro #MacroClique #arthropod_perfection #macromood #bugs_are_us #arthropodsanonymous #insect_perfection #smallworld_uc #nature_of_our_world #wms_macro #I_macro_I #macroandflora #bl_pl #nature_perfection #macro_freaks #insectguru

The large tree nymph (Idea leuconoe) has a chrysalis that is an almost-golden, metallic yellow. It takes the butterfly about 11 days to develop at this stage. These chrysalides are surprisingly difficult to find considering their bright color. I think that the metallic coloring appears to reflect its surroundings. #nature_sultans #mta_macro #naturelover_gr #igscwildlife #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macroexperienice #macro_holic #macro_captures #butterfly_ir #bns_macro #inspiring_shot #arthropod_perfection #macromood #macrobutterfly #arthropodsanonymous #insect_perfection #fingerprintofgod #wms_macro #m_igclub_butterfly #masters_in_macro #kings_insects #9vaga_butterfly9 #macro_freaks #insectguru #nature_of_our_world #kelebeklerimiz

The large tree nymph (Idea leuconoe) is a large butterfly with a wingspan of up to 14 centimeters. This Asian species has a slow and graceful flight.

The Caligo eurilochus minor is a subspecies found in Trinidad. Known locally as the forest mort bleu, this large forest dweller has a wingspan of up to 13.5 centimeters.

Green orchid bees (Euglossa dilemma) are one of my favorite backyard creatures, even though they are non-native in Florida.

The zebra longwing (Heliconius charithonia) is the Florida state butterfly. A worthy designation for a species that may live up to 6 months when compared to the average adult butterfly living for 10 days. This longevity is fueled by its use of pollen in addition to nectar, as part of its diet. Pupal mating also occurs with this species as seen here. Males patrol for female pupae and days before she emerges, perch on her awaiting her arrival. Their bold pattern (aposematic coloration) warns would-be predators that it is not a palatable meal. #nature_sultans #mta_macro #naturelover_gr #igscwildlife #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macroexperienice #macro_holic #macro_captures #butterfly_ir #bns_macro #inspiring_shot #arthropod_perfection #macromood #macrobutterfly #arthropodsanonymous #insect_perfection #m_igclub_butterfly #macro_turkey #masters_in_macro #flowersandmacro #kings_insects #macroandflora #9vaga_butterfly9 #insectguru #nature_of_our_world #kelebeklerimiz

Well, it’s mango season and the fruit feeders are indulging. πŸ˜‹ Male dingy purplewing (Eunica monima) butterflies were once thought to possess purple, with the females lacking this coloration and possessing only Browns. However, after @keysmoths and I raised about 100+ larvae to adulthood a few years ago, he suspected that females also possessed a purple morph. Specimens were sent to Dr. James Adams, who confirmed his suspicions. Adults feed on tree sap, dung, fruit such as mangoes, and may also be seen puddling. They often perch in trees where they are cryptically colored on their underside and also spend a considerable amount of time flying around tree canopies. This species is found in South Florida, the West Indies and Mexico through Central America and northern South America south to Venezuela. #nature_sultans #mta_macro #naturelover_gr #igscwildlife #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macroexperienice #macro_holic #macro_captures #butterfly_ir #bns_macro #inspiring_shot #arthropod_perfection #macromood #macrobutterfly #arthropodsanonymous #insect_perfection #wms_macro #m_igclub_butterfly #kings_insects #macroandflora #9vaga_butterfly9 #nature_perfection #macro_freaks #insectguru #nature_of_our_world #kelebeklerimiz

The Red Lacewing (Cethosia biblis) is medium sized with a wingspan extending up to (3 1/2 inches) 9 cm long. The undersides range from bright red to pale brown, interlaced by black and white. This astonishing pattern helps to disguise the shape of the butterfly, while the intense color of the dorsal sides of the wings is a warning to predators that the Red Lacewing has a bad taste, derived from the poisonous host plants of the caterpillars. The Red Lacewing butterfly is mainly found in the Indian Subcontinent towards the Southeast Asia and East Asia, in the Philippines and the Indonesia regions. The Red Lacewing Butterfly are also found in Burma, China, Indochina, Thailand, the Andaman Islands and northeast India. #nature_sultans #mta_macro #naturelover_gr #igscwildlife #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macroexperienice #macro_holic #macro_captures #butterfly_ir #bns_macro #inspiring_shot #arthropod_perfection #macrobutterfly #arthropodsanonymous #wms_macro #m_igclub_butterfly #top_macro #masters_in_macro #kings_insects #macroandflora #9vaga_butterfly9 #nature_perfection #macro_freaks #insectguru #nature_of_our_world #kelebeklerimiz

Adult butterflies are often seen along roadside ditches where host plants are abundant. Among them at many host plants is water hyssop (Bacopa monnieri) and Browne's blechum (Ruellia blechum).

The Halloween pennant (Celithemis eponina) is named for its orange tinted wings and black bands. It is one of the largest, most widely distributed and likely the most colorful small pennant species. They perch on the tips of plants and twigs and are generally found close to bodies of water. Few dragonflies seem to like wind and rain like this species and the halloween pennants are active in stiff winds, on cool days, and even light mist. Dragonflies are very beneficial insects as they eat mosquitoes and other flying insects including other dragonflies. #nature_sultans #mta_macro #naturelover_gr #igscwildlife #InstaNatureFriends_ #naturehippys_ #wildlife_seekers #macroworld_tr #macro_holic #macro_captures #bns_macro #inspiring_shot #macromood #smallworld_uc #wms_macro #macro_turkey #top_macro #masters_in_macro #macroandflora #bl_pl #nature_of_our_world #ig_shotz #igscwildlife #insectguru #flowersandmacro #I_macro_I #macroandflora #nature_of_our_world #macro_delight
