One of the most difficult subjects in photography is Wildlife. A photographer cannot tell a wild animal to pose like this or like that. If your not lucky enough, prepare to either get hurt or worst get killed..
One thing I like most in wildlife photography is the never ending chain of surprises and puzzling discoveries of how nature do its thing. In this post I will unveil and unlock one of nature's wonder you may have never thought to exist.
caterpillar that becomes a cocoon and
after several days a moth comes out of
a cocoon? Would you believe? Of
course you'll do. It's very normal even
though you may not really understand
what is happening in between stages of
tells you about a caterpillar that's nursing some
cocoons? I'm sure you'll say its crazy.
But if somebody from Pueblo de Panay tells you
of a caterpillar that's nursing some cocoons and
shows you these pictures maybe you'll think twice
that is, if you're a science buff .
Now I'll tell you of a caterpillar I found at Pueblo de Panay that looks as if it was nursing some cocoons:
In fact there are some parasitic wasps residing at Pueblo de Panay that capture any kind of caterpillar they handle and prick in it with a paralyzing toxin enough to immobilize but cannot kill it. The wasps then stick the caterpillar on their cocoons .It would be a bad end then for the caterpillar because by the time the wasps' larvae emerge from the cocoon, they will have a ready to eat sustenance.
What an awful way to die. But that's how nature do its thing.' Nature rules', as they say.
Better believe me.
I've been there.
