Studying nature🧠🌼 / Estudiando la naturaleza🐜🐝🦋

in Amazing Naturelast month
Hello nature lovers, today I bring you a post full of beautiful photos! I decided to shoot several macros with my "Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG OS Macro" lens but also to identify and describe a bit the ecology of each species photographed, so there is a lot of interesting information to learn about bugs and flowers! As a moderator of the community I always like to inspire new users by leaving my post as an example to create innovative content that can contribute something scientific to the community!🤔🕵️‍♂️👨‍🏫

Hola amantes de la naturaleza, hoy les traigo un post cargado de hermosas fotos! me propuse tirar varias macros con mi lente "Sigma 105mm f/2.8 DG OS Macro" pero tambien identificar y describir un poco la ecologia de cada especie fotografiada, por tanto hay mucha informacion interesante para apreder sobre los bichos y las flores! como moderador de la comunidad me gusta siempre inspirar a los nuevos usuarios dejandoles como ejemplo mi post para crear contenido innovador que pueda aportar algo cientifico a la comunidad!🦋🐜🌼💐🌸

What am I looking for as a curator???🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫/ Que busco como curador??🐜🦋

Something that always captures my attention first is to see a post with bibliographic sources, and it is something that is easy to capture in our posts, practically we must encourage other users to read a little more about the species that we present in our content! a post without a bibliographical reference is hardly credible for me and forces me to investigate to find out if the user "plagiarized" or is writing something "nonsense", therefore if you want to impress me I must see bibliographical sources in your post! just like I do in all my posts! WHAT IF THE CONTENT IS MY OWN? Two things apply here: 1) if it is a REFLECTION you should not use a bibliography, or 2) if you can prove that you are a specialist scientist in the area and you are currently in the field working with "that species".🕵️‍♂️👨‍🏫😍😮
Algo que capta siempre mi atencion primeramente es ver un post con fuentes bibliograficas, y es algo que es facil de plasmar en nuestros post, practicamente debemos incentivar a otros usuarios a leer un poco mas sobre la especie que presentamos en nuestro contenido! un post sin referencia bibliografica es poco creible para mi y me obliga a indagar para saber si el usuario "realizo plagio" o esta escribiendo alguna "cosa sin sentido", por tanto si quieres impresionarme debo ver fuentes bibliograficas en tus post! asi como yo lo hago en todos mis post! Y SI EL CONTENIDO ES MIO? aqui aplican dos cosas: 1) si es una REFLEXION no debes usar bibliografia, o 2) si puedes comprobar que eres un cientifico especialista en el area y actualmente estas en el campo trabajando con "dicha especie".📕📚📚

An ecological contribution🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫/ Un aporte ecologico🐜🦋

Magnoliophyta🌻

One of the things that over time I noticed that was valued in the community is a scientific contribution! Describing what we are photographing helps us to better culture ourselves and this helps us to better understand the animals and plants that inhabit nature! while I was walking making macros I wanted to observe which flowers were the ones that received the most insects for their pollination and I was surprised that "Doronicum austriacum" was pollinated by many insects in just 15 minutes, I managed to count more than 13! I mean an average of almost one insect per minute an arthropod not only uses a flower to pollinate it can also use it for: food, shelter, reproduction (1).
Una de las cosas que con el tiempo observe que era valorado en la comunidad es un aporte cientifico! describir lo que estamos fotografiando nos ayuda a culturizarnos mejor y esto ayuda a que entendamos mejor los animales y plantas que habitan en la naturaleza! mientras caminaba realizando macros quise observar que flores eran las que mas insectos recibian para su polinizacion y me sorprendio que "Doronicum austriacum" fuera polinizada por muchos insectos en tan solo 15 minutos, logre contar mas de 13! osea una media de casi un insecto por minuto un artropodo no solo utiliza una flor para polinizar tambien la puede usar para: alimentacion, refugio, reproduccion (1).

Syritta pipiens🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐜🦋

Here we have our first insect its scientific name is (Syritta pipiens), it can measure up to "9mm" as you can see its anatomy "reveals" it is a fly, here in Portugal they are common and are distributed in almost the entire territory! who would say that such a "tiny" animal is extremely territorial? the males hate to share their "flower with other flies". Their function in the ecosystem is important since they are also small pollinators! if you see it in your country then there is a problem... Since they are of "European" origin. (2)👨‍🏫📚😮🐝
Aqui tenemos nuestro primer insecto su nombre cientifico es (Syritta pipiens), puede llegar a medir hasta "9mm" como puedes ver su anatomia lo "delata" es una mosca, aqui en Portugal son comunes y se distribuyen en casi todo el territorio! quien diria que un animal tan "minusculo" es extremadamente territorial?? los machos odian compartir su "flor con otras moscas". Su funcion en el ecosistema es importante ya que tambien son pequeños polinizadores! si la ves en tu pais entonces hay un problema... Ya que son de origen "europeo" (2).🐞🐜🌼

In these photos there is something interesting and it is that many of us think that bees are the only pollinators on the planet and it is not like that, animals like Syritta pipiens also provide a natural balance, and without mentioning that they are food for superior animals such is the case of birds , spiders.🤯🤯
En estas fotos hay algo interesante y es que muchos pensamos que las abejas son las unicas polinizadoras del planeta y no es asi, animales como Syritta pipiens tambien aportan un equilibrio natural, y sin mencionar que son alimentos para animales superiores tal es el caso de aves, arañas. 🌼🌷

Stomorhina lunata🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐜🦋

Another insect perched on one of the leaves of (Doronicum austriacum), was also easy to identify since its face gives it away, it is a fly, it is grouped in the "diptera" which are insects with 2 wings, the most interesting part of this insect is that they are also common in flowers since they feed on pollen and if you look at their head there is rest of pollen on it, when they clean themselves they end up releasing the pollen on another flower and thus pollinate! its larvae "are predatory"(3)👨‍🏫🐝
Otro insecto posado en una de las hojas de (Doronicum austriacum), tambien fue facil de identificar ya que su cara lo delata se trata de una mosca, se agrupa en los "dipteros" que son insectos con 2 alas, la parte mas interesante de este insecto es que tambien son comunes en flores ya que se alimentan del polen y si observas su cabeza hay resto de polen en ella, cuando se limpian acaban por soltar el polen en otra flor y asi polinizan! sus larvas "son depredadoras"(3)🧠🤯📕

Nerium oleander🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌼🌷

belongs to the genus Nerium🌻

This plant is very common in urban areas and cities, surely you have seen it near your home, it has a pleasant aroma but do not be carried away by its beautiful appearance, it is "toxic and bitter" in our society it is considered a poisonous plant! (3)
Esta planta es muy comun de zonas urbanas y ciudades, seguramente la has visto cerca de tu hogar, tiene un aroma agradable pero no te dejes llevar por su linda apariencia, es "toxica y amarga" en nuestra sociedad es considerada como una planta venenosa! (3)

Vespula germanica🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐝

Of all the insects that I photographed, this was the most common, currently there are not many butterflies there, so it was normal not to capture any! the European wasp as it is commonly known, is a "hymenoptera" characteristic for being very social! common in almost all the Portuguese territory! (4)🌼👨‍🏫📕
De todos los insectos que fotografie este fue el mas comun, actualmente no hay muchas mariposas por alli por tanto fue normal no capturar ninguna! la avispa europea asi se le conoce comunmente, es un "himenóptero" caracteristico por ser muy social! comun en casi todo el territorio portugues! (4)🧠🌸

I always think that those most beautiful animals hide some "dark secret" this wasp is a powerful invader that due to anthropogenic factors came to invade the United States and some South American countries being considered "a plague".(4)🌻😮📚
Siempre pienso que aquellos animales mas bonitos esconden algun "oscuro secreto" esta avispa es una poderosa invasora que por factores antropogenicos llego a invadir estados unidos y algunos paises de sur america siendo considerada "una plaga".(4)🌎😯

Craspedia🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐝

This beautiful flower belongs to the "asteraceae" family, I'm not an expert in botany but I think the species is (Pycnosorus globosa), its flowers are globular, for many years it was a commercial plant due to its beautiful flowers! As you can see, it is the preferred site of (Syritta pipiens) so I noticed the fly visited this flower more frequently!(5)😏🤩🌷
Esta hermosa flor pertenece a la familia "asteráceas", no soy un experto en botanica pero creo que la especie es (Pycnosorus globosa), sus flores son globulares, por muchos años fue una planta comercial debido a sus bonitas flores! como puedes ver es el sitio preferido de (Syritta pipiens) por lo que observe la mosca visitaba con mas frecuencia esta flor!(5)🌻🌻🐝

the flower preferred by flies🌻

There is an intimate relationship between flower species and insects and it seems very important to me that if we study which flowers are preferred by certain insects then we can attract them to our homes if we want to study them! or better yet we know which flower to look for if we want to get a certain insect!(5)🌼🤯
Hay una intima relacion entre las especies de flores y los insectos y me parece muy importante que si estudiamos que flores son las preferidas por determinados insectos entonces podemos atraerlos a nuestros hogares si los queremos estudiar! o mejor aun sabemos en cual flor buscar si queremos conseguir un determinado insecto!(5)👨‍🏫

Lavandula spica🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌻🌸

It must be one of the most popular flowers in the world, the famous lavender! It is common in high areas but it resists various types of environments, so we can also see them in parks! is known because it blooms in summer! it was not common to portugal it was introduced!(6)💐🌸
Debe ser una de las flores mas populares del mundo, la famosa lavanda! es comun de zonas altas pero resiste a varios tipos de ambientes por tanto tambien podemos verlas en parques! es conocida porque florece en verano! no era comun de portugal fue introducida!(6)👨‍🏫🌼

Apis mellifera🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌻🌸

Of course, I had to find our great pollinator, the European bee, in some flower. It is an "apocrite hymenopteran", it is said that it is the bee with the greatest distribution on our planet "common in Europe, Africa and Asia", this animal is essential in the ecological balance since they are the quintessential pollinators!(7)🌼🌸
Por supuesto tenia que encontrarme en alguna flor a nuestra gran polinizadora la abeja europea, es un "himenóptero apócrito", se dice que es la abeja con mayor distribucion en nuestro planeta "comun en europa, africa y asia", este animal es indispensable en el equilibrio ecologico ya que son las polinizadoras por excelencia! (7)🐝🌻

This plant called (Zinnia elegans) was very frequented by the European bee, it belongs to the Zinnia genus and is common in dry climates! the flower has many mutations and you can see this plant with flowers of various colors! widely used in decoration📚👨‍🏫🌼
Esta planta llamada (Zinnia elegans) era muy frecuentada por la abeja europea, pertenece al genero Zinnia y es comun en climas secos! la flor tiene muchas mutaciones y puedes ver esta planta con flores de varios colores! bastante usada en la decoracion💐🌷👨‍🏫

Ameguilla🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌻🌸

These bees are different in coloration appearing to be "silver" they belong to the Apidae family, more than 750 species have been discovered all over the planet! They behave like the European bee because they are very fast and don't last long on the flower when they feed! photographing them was difficult!(8)💐🌼
Estas abejas son diferentes en coloracion aparentando ser "plateadas" pertenecen a la familia Apidae, se han descubirerto mas de 750 especies en todo el planeta! tienen un comportamiento a la abeja europea porque son muy rapidas y duran poco tiempo en la flor cuando se alimentan! fotografiarlas fue dificil!(8)📚🌻🐝

Echinacea purpurea🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌻🌸

This beautiful flower belongs to the "Asteraceae" it is very famous because it has medicinal and "ornamental" uses. It caught my attention that it is a very striking flower but it did not attract many insects, and I only saw some common flies, sometimes the most striking sometimes does not attract insects!(9)😮💐🌼
Esta linda flor pertenece a las "Asteraceae" es muy famosa ya que tiene usos medicinales y "ornamentales" me llamo la atencion que es una flor muy llamativa pero que no atraia muchos insectos, y solo vi algunas moscas comun, aveces lo mas llamativo aveces no atrae a los insectos!(9)💚💛💙

Achillea alpina🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌻🌸

It belongs to the genus: (Milenramas), it is a perennial that can reach up to two meters in height, it has a variety of mutations and therefore we see some with different colors, although normally its normal coloration is white! "flowers between July to September", has been introduced in some countries like Portugal for example!(10)🌼🌸🌷
pertenece al genero: (Milenramas), es una perenne que puede llegar a medir hasta dos metros de altura, tiene una variedad de mutaciones y por tanto vemos algunas con colores diferentes, aunque normalmente su coloracion normal es blanca! "florece entre julio a septiembre", ha sido introducida en algunos paises como portugal por ejemplo!(10)🌎📚

the genus (Ozyptila) are spiders known as "crab spiders", in turn they are part of the "Thomisidae" family, these spiders are strange because they move laterally looking like real crabs! also their first legs are big, they have a "very powerful poison used to hunt insects", I couldn't call them pollinators because they are predators but they help keep the ecosystem balanced!(11)👨‍🏫🤯
el genero (Ozyptila) son arañas conocidas como "arañas cangrejos", a su vez forman parte de la familia "Thomisidae", estas arañas son extrañas porque se desplazan de forma lateral pareciendo verdaderos cangrejos! ademas sus primeras patas son grandes, tienen un "veneno muy potente usado para cazar insectos", no podria llamarlas polinizadoras porque son depredadoras pero ayudan a mantener el ecosistema equilibrado!(11)🕵️‍♂️🦋🧠

Lycianthes rantonnetii🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🌻🌸

This beautiful plant is native to South America, and was introduced here in Portugal for ornamental purposes, do not see many insects on it so it is not very attractive to them! belongs to the family "Solanaceae".(12)📚🌎🤯
Esta linda planta es originaria de america del sur, y fue introducida aqui en Portugal con fines ornametales, no observe muchos insectos en ella por tanto no es muy atractiva para ellos! pertenece a la familia "Solanaceae".(12)🌼🌸🌻

Numida meleagris🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🦃

This beautiful bird is part of the order: "Galinaceous" is of African origin, when the Portuguese went to colonize South America they introduced this species, therefore it is a bird with a great capacity for adaptation! many farms use them to control pests!(13)😏😏
Esta linda ave forma parte del orden: "Galináceos" es de origen africana, cuando los portugueses fueron a colonizar america del sur introducieron esta especie por tanto es un ave con una gran capacidad de adaptacion! muchas granjas las usan para controlar plagas!(13)🦃🤯

Sarcophaga carnaria🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🦃

insects with great vision🐜🦋

Known as "chess fly" we all know it, they can measure up to 20 millimeters, the larvae of these insects are very resistant and are able to withstand high temperatures! they have a good sense of "smell" they are cosmopolitan!(14)🌼🤯
Conocida como "mosca de ajedrez" todos la conocemos, pueden medir hasta 20milimetros, las larvas de estos insectos es muy resistente y son capaces de soportar altas temperatura! tienen un buen sentido del "olfato" son cosmopolitas!(14)👨‍🏫🐝

Tiphiidae🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐝🌻

Here we see another specimen that belongs to the family (tiphiidae) that are the "flower wasps", they are "hymenoptera" that unlike other wasps these are usually solitary and territorial! many wasps to complete their life cycle need a host to lay their larvae so beetles are important to complete their life cycle!(15)😮😮
Aqui vemos otro ejemplar que pertenece a la familia (tiphiidae) que son las "avispas de las flores", son "himenópteros" que a diferencia de otras avispas estos suelen ser solitarios y territoriales! muchas avispas para completar su ciclo de vida necesitan un huesped para dejar sus larvas por tanto los escarabajos son importantes para completar su ciclo de vida!🐜🧠📚🌼(15)

Cylindromyia🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐝🌻

There are few studies on this species! It is very small and belongs to the "Tachinidae" family, they are flies that are originally found in Europe! they are dipterans with more than "1300" species around the world!(16)📕👨‍🏫🌷
Hay pocos estudios sobre esta especie! es muy pequena y pertenece a la familia "Tachinidae", son moscas que originalmente se encuentran en europa! son dipteros con mas de "1300" especies alrededor del mundo!(16)📕👨‍🏫📚

Coryzus hyosciami🙇‍♂️👨‍🏫🐝🌻

It is an insect that belongs to the family "Rhopalidae" does not produce odor and are common in flowers and herbs! in Portugal we practically find it in almost the whole country! They are small and do not reach a centimeter! they feed on plants and their adulthood occurs in the "winter" months!(17)😯🧠🐜
es un insecto que pertenece a la familia "Rhopalidae" no produce olor y son comunes en flores y hierbas! en Portugal practicamente lo encontramos en casi todo el pais! son pequenos y no llegan a un centimetro! se alimentan de plantas y su adultes se produce en los meses "de invierno!(17)"🌼🌷📚

Bellisismas fotografias acompañadas de una interesante información. La relación entre los insectos polinizadores y las flores me gusto mucho, porque dan una idea de la variabilidad de especies que cumplen esta inmportante función. Gracias por las recomendaciones para dar más valor a las publicaciones sobre la naturaleza.
