Dyrenes kamuflasje

Vi har ved flere tidligere anledninger skrevet og vist bilder fra naturen hvor dyrene utnytter sine kamuflasje-egenskaper for å unngå å bli middag for andre arter som ser etter ‘middagsmat’. Idag skal vi se litt på en sitron-sommerfugl som gjør sitt beste for å ligne et vanlig blad.
On several occasions we have spoken about and presented you with pictures showing you how small beings in our garden avoid being ‘dinner’ for species that are looking for such!
Here a lemon butterfly looking much like an ordinary leaf.
Og hvis det ikke hadde vært for at jeg ikke så etter middag, men faktisk en ‘sommerfugl’ så hadde det vært lett å gå forbi . . . (Om det ikke hadde vært for ‘fluen’ som sitter på ‘bladet’ 🙂

And if it hadn’t been for the fact that I didn’t look for dinner, but in fact a butterfly, it would have been easy to pass it up . . . .?  (If it hadn’t been for ‘the fly’ sitting on ‘the’leaf’ 🙂

    Amazing capture. The butterfly’s ability to blend in is its defense for the defenseless.

      That’s nature for you!
      I’ve seen butterflies clearly land in one specific place in a bush, and have been standing there gazing for at least 10 minutes without being able to find it.

    It’s visible enough in both pictures, I guess, but if you don’t expect to see one, it’s very easy overlooked!

    Didnt see it before in the second pickture of it

  4. Seenorway says:

    Yes, now that you say it – much less than usual here as well!

  5. Despite a mild and overall dry winter, both Butterflies and moths, are hard to find this year.
