Photos and videos of our amazing 2D residents

Do you know what the abduction of our 2D friends by humans looks like? ;-)

Here is a cut from the live stream of the osprey's nest. You can see how the nestlings are being put into the bag (1:15) and taken down the tree (2:30). Then, after ringing, they are put back in the nest (from 9:55).

I was amazed they do not resist the process at all. It looks almost as if they were paralyzed.

Several similarities to 4D STS abductions here, don't you think? ;-)

Orchid Mantis
When is an orchid not an orchid? When it's a female orchid praying mantis, a Southeast Asian insect that masquerades as a flower to attract prey.

With petal-like legs and a yellow or whitish pink color, females share little resemblance to males, which are about half the size and sport a dull, greenish brown color.

Now, new research shows that male and female orchid mantises don't just look different—they evolved in a way never before seen in arthropods, the group that includes spiders and insects. (See pictures of amazing insect camouflage.)

The research suggests that the females' strategy of hunting pollinating insects shaped the two known species' evolution, leading to big females that resemble orchids and small males adept at hiding.

Il y a quelques semaines, l'Institut royal des sciences naturelles de Belgique a recensé 35 nids et 101 cigogneaux à #pairidaiza !
🐣
L'objectif de ce baguage est d'étudier leur migration et leur démographie mais aussi leur longévité.
Merci à Quel temps - RTBF, qui nous explique dans ce reportage pourquoi ce baguage est important.

Magpie Death Ritual

In July of 2013 a Magpie died on our front street in Saskatoon and we witnessed what we believe is a Magpie death ritual. It lasted about 10 minutes as a large number of Magpies came down and seemed to express their grief over their lost comrade.
Magpie rituals have been written about by Dr. Marc Bekoff of the University of Colorado.

I saw something similar with cows. One cow was lying dead in the pasture, and other cows gathered round it in a circle for quite a while.
When I was living in the country I very often saw cows under a tree in a sort of meeting, 5 or 6 cows together, sitting on the grass, giving the strange impression that they were in a sort of meeting, debating something, but by telepathy and very calm they were. It was so beautiful to see them like that. They look like kings, saviors, philosophers.

Morpho Rhetenor

Description

Hans Fruhstorfer describes: "M. rhetenor, already named by Cramer the 'blue elongate Atlas butterfly', has the apex of the forewing more produced than any other Morphid species; a characteristic, however, that partially disappears in the female, which more resembles that of cypris. The male is one of the most brilliantly glossy species and has only a quite inconsiderable black apical spot and a white costal patch on the forewing. The under surface is noteworthy for the contrast between the black basal area and a brown distal region, which are separated by a median band of a more or less pure white and of varying extent according to the locality. Both wings beneath show brown rounded eye-spots entirely without white pupils."

Sex difference

Morpho rhetenor is sexually dimorphic. The female is bigger than the bright blue male and has a dark-brown upperside with a lighter brown outer edge. There is a central yellow area tapering into a triangle and isolated patches as it crosses the forewings and a separate chain of yellow spots crosses the forewings and hindwings.

I call that a 'cow pow-wow' :-P it always makes my heart (and face) smile, and I so want to go and sit with them.
I often see them sitting in a group, all their heads facing in, like they are communicating collectively through some kind of telepathic group meditation / discussion. It is so beautiful to witness Loretta, and yes they certainly do give the impression of being deeply philosophical. Those moments certainly remind me to be as present as I can in the eternal 'now' and breathe deeply.

I sometimes wonder if they are discussing how stupid and annoying human beings can be,
or perhaps how they are going to avoid the latest 'cowvax'.

But maybe they are simply in direct communion with the DCM,
offering love and gratitude for their lives, and each other 🌷☘️🌞
