Thu, 27 Oct 2016 02:30:52 -0700Common godzilla ant Camponotus compressus is a species of ant found in India and Southeast Asia. It is a frequent visitor to toilets as it consumes urea.It is one of the many species which tends plant-sap-sucking insects like aphids and tree hoppers. These ants stroke their antenna on the hind parts of these insects stimulating them to excrete a sugar rich liquid, called honeydew, which the ants consume. In return, they are known to protect the insects from predators like ladybugs. http://yourshot.nationalgeographic.com/photos/9186093/ --For better resolution.

Wed, 26 Oct 2016 01:32:27 -0700Mylabris pustulata is a species of blister beetle belonging to the Meloidae family found in South Asia. Adults feed mainly on flowers from a wide range of plant families. The first larval instar is an active triungulin form that is a predator of soft insects such as aphids. While the young are often beneficial to crops by suppressing other plant feeders, the adults can be a problem when present in large numbers. Flower feeding leads to lower yield and this can be a problem in some leguminous crops. They are however easily controlled by manual collection.

Tue, 25 Oct 2016 12:49:57 -0700This brown coloured species of Jumping Spider is sort of resident on the walls of my house terrace. Now that it is getting a bit cooler in north India, I see less of them now. Anyway, here is another macro of it taken with Ext Tube which always results in partial focus in my case.
