Sun, 15 Jan 2017 04:59:00 -0800

Orange blister beetle is species of blister beetles that secrete a powerful blistering agent which causes skin burns when it comes in contact with the skin. The bright coloration is a warning to the predators to stay away from them. In some species,while mating, the males would give the blistering agent to the females who would later cover her eggs with it as a protective layer The young ones are beneficial to the crops, while the adult forms in large numbers are very destructive.

India Nature Watch - 'Potters' at work - Potter or Mason Wasps

Sat, 14 Jan 2017 19:19:43 -0800

" ... watching the nest created by a Potter Wasp or a Mason Wasp is indeed witnessing a nature's miracle ... the exquisitely sculpted pot, built bit by bit ... laboriously but lovingly ... the wasp carries the mud by mixing the soil with its saliva ... and then laying an egg in it ... making provision for its food by placing a larva stung with its venom ! On an earlier occasion, we were fortunate to watch a nest taking shape right outside our residence. But watching this team of Potter Wasp at work was indeed a treasured moment. We were on a trail in Bhandup and there was a damp patch on the ground. It was the activity of these wasps which caught our eye. We also saw that a wasp, presumably another species - going by its different appearance - also decided to attend the mud ball making party. It looked like a group activity and probably they had their nesting site close by." It is TheUntamedEarth Moments image for the month of January 2017 and now a part of the Gallery by the same name on www.TheUntamedEarth.com To contribute images and or articles, pl refer to the GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION on the site.
