A.Vogeltuinen summer 2021.

avogel gardens.

It's so close and yet I had never been there since two years ago, AVogel gardens . At the time, it happened to be discovered when I explored Zwaluwenburg estate in November. But now I want to enjoy the summer flowers and I hope to see a lot of butterflies. Hopefully this first Sunday of September is not too late.

What a floral splendor!

And indeed, it looks just white from the cabbage whites. Those flutters are pretty hard to get in the picture, but I've been practicing for a few years.

It's hard work!

All kinds of insects are only busy with it. Such a sunflower consists of a lot of small flowers, so before you've had them all.

When I approach a pagable with caution, something unexpected happens. Fortunately, I have my work mobile.

And in the end, a nice photo made of another copy.

Lots of butterflies near the butterfly bushes.

The butterfly bushes can attract special butterflies, so I'll stay there a little longer. Well, a chopped aurelia I have been pictured many times, but remains a beautiful butterfly.

Herb Garden.

Beyond the general atalantas and day-peacock eyes, not much special comes along. Then go on to the herb garden. And there's a rather small butterfly that I haunt for a while. I really have to keep my eyes on the animal, because despite the beautiful color it is suddenly invisible on the paths between the herb beds.

The little mother of pearl.

At home, I only see in the picture that this female was probably laying eggs. Because the host plant of the small pearl butterfly is the violet in different types. If you look closely in this photo, you can see that she has curved her body and the light-colored ball on the plant could be a breeze. See the green arrow.

Wasp spider.

The nasturtium is also full in bloom. And there's this pretty lady hanging. A wasp spider.

Caterpillars.

The herb garden has everything to taste, delicious! And then my eye falls on a large caterpillar of the queen's page on the leaf chervil. My heart is jumping, my day can't break anymore. And when I look a little longer, there appear to be even more smaller caterpillars to the plant. They are so striking, but you still look over them quickly.

Explore further.

Very slowly I walk along the large beds with sun hats, hoping to spot another special butterfly.

And I like something too, but unfortunately I don't get a better picture than this one, so no idea what it is.

Look at that ring paw fly balancing!

A white giant.

Movie star!

It seems interesting to me to film a large saber grasshopper on a sun hat, because now that I have it so big on my screen, I can clearly see how such an animal can produce that noise. By rubbing one wing with teething over the thick vein on the other wing, it gets this sound, meant to lure a female. Honestly don't know if he's had success, as long as I haven't stood. Don't forget to turn on the sound when you watch the movie.

It's been another lovely, educational afternoon/evening.

Definitely worth repeating.

A tiny tropical fish with a sense of self.
Hello! I am the blue wrasse and would love to tell you something. - #today #scienceresearch #wrassewrasse #animalblogpost A few weeks ago, divers appeared among the beautiful reef in which I live. That was not the first time and because they always left us alone before, I just continued with my 'assignment'. That is rid of fish from parasites. We help fish in all sizes Also very large. Actually, I'm not really sure what these fish think about us. Perhaps they think that we are very social and therefore necessarily want to rid them of their inconveniences. But hi hi, we just love parasites. That is our food source . The fish who want to make a clean make it known with the movements they make, or sounds they make. Some whip their tails. Others are constantly opening their mouth. They never eat us because they are all too happy when they get rid of those parasites . So in four weeks, I was diligently brushing, so collecting my favorite fare, when I suddenly ended up in a big green mesh net . A diver was the cause of that. I was almost shocked by a bump. The creature brought me to the surface. Really a really nasty experience But again, she released me from the net into a reservoir. A little after that, we sat in a medium-sized aquarium with a small swarm . Which was confirmed on one side something in which I could see myself. At first I thought this was another cleaning fish that was challenging le wat . Because it seemed to tap my face every time. But, after a skirmish, I suddenly realized it was me. Yes waded! What an experience. I thought I did look nice. So beautiful blue, small and slim. So I did some dances for my own reflection. Whew it was quite a relief that I wasn't confronted with an aggressive fish of my own kind. Then suddenly I saw a brown spot on my skin. I knew that a diver had inflicted it on my skin. That dot looked completely like a parasite. But unfortunately it wasn't . I had to look at my bodice of hgel against a stone lying in the bin. But again, I am completely pure again. The next day she put me and the other fish in a different tank, certainly. Now the mirror was not the entire width of the widest window. But right to the much narrower. And the creature that caught me did put another dot on my body. The Netherners. It made me feel terribly small and impotent. I had never felt that kind of powerless feeling in the reef between the corals and the very big fish. Well if everyone accepts you as a fish and does you no harm, you won't think about that either. This time, of course, I knew better immediately. So I only admired a little more in that narrower mirror. Anything else you couldn't do in the aquarium and scrub off the stain they had inflicted on me . In the meantime, I was getting hungry and an awful lot of homesickness. Which caused me to crave my own hiding spot for the night and, of course, my friends, the fish in need of care. The next day we were put into another thing. This time with the mirror to the left and the same again: a dot on my body. Yes, say. That's when I really had my coming from it. But also this time, out of boredom, I did some dances in the mirror. But I really felt a bit weakened without my daily portion of fresh parasites . We did get food. But fed up that was importantnot fresh and far from tasty. And then whoopee! they transferred us into a cockpit, the whole group all of a sudden, and let go back. All right, this was in our familiar spot . Because I was afraid they would just tip us out of here I was euphorically happy when I found my hideout intact for the night. Those divers are weird snouts, huh? I've already thought silly. But, so far, still can't figure out why they did such a thing to us. It must have something to do with those mirrors. But what? But yes I have actually been happy for a long time now that I can fill my belly again and that I have my friends, the fish in need of care, back in my vicinity. Conclusion of the researchers. The blue wrasse appears to have a self-awareness. We didn't expect this at all with a fish So there will be more fish that have that. The wrasse does have a good eyesight . This must have it in order to see the tiny parasites clearly High cognitive behavior, such as recognizing yourself in the mirror, is not limited to humans, great apes, chimpanzees, dolphins, magpies and elephants Since we have repeated this sample a few times, we now know that smaller fish with a self-awareness also exist . So not all fish belong to a group of lower cognitive abilities
