Again with an exclusive photo from ArgO as on the previous blog. This is here : The Tortoiseshell Butterfly very common in the UK.
I did a little research on this animal among other information I learned that the striking patterns on the wings are actually for selfdefense. The article from an Encyclopedia said: When the butterfly is frightened than opens up his wings and it is believed that a young predator can be scared away by the bright yellow and striking black pattern . There is always something to learn from the Beauties of Nature!
Unfortunately where I live on Long Island N.Y. U.S. I do not see such beauties. I believe there is just a frantic chase against insects and many little wildlife in order to keep the humans habitation " nice and clean". What about the toxic chemicals to be used for this purpose? That is an other question to be raised.
I am happy that with my blogging I can share some information to you Dear Reader.
It seems that I am slowly but surely progressing in the maze of blogging! Sorry! But for me this is not so easy as it is believed to be. Not at the beginning anyway! Well I am just (a) : Blue Bird :)
