Aclaracion: La foto 1 y 2 son de otro sujeto. En las siguientes fotos, la avispa hacía un pozo en la tierra como un perro con sus patas. Entraba en el agujero, sacaba tierra, entraba, salia. ------ GOOGLE TRANSLATION--------- Disclaimer: Photo 1 and 2 are of another subject. In the photos below, the wasp was a hole in the ground like a dog with its paws. Entered the hole, drew land entered, came out.
Taken at a butterfly farm in Subic Bay, Zambales, Philippines. I have looked at lots of photos of butterflies in the Philippines but have not identified any of the butterflies I took photos of on 22 December 2013.
One of the most attractive and recognizable garden visitors. The head has a blue cap, black eye stripe and white face, framed by a black collar giving it a facial mask, typical of some tits. The chest and abdomen are yellowish while the back is bluish-gray. It moves frenetically through the foliage, and so it is not always easy to enjoy its chromatic pattern.
For the developers at New York start-up Networked Organisms, smartphones are the butterfly nets of the 21st Century. Their tool, Project Noah, lets people upload photos of plants and wildlife around them, creating a map of the natural world and contributing to scientific research in the process.
Bespectacled scientists of yore would carry around hefty field guides, made up of hundreds of pages of text and photos. But these days, smartphone owners have a lighter option: an app called Project Noah, which aims to help people identify plants and animals as well as collect data from "citizen scientists" about where certain species are located.
Project Noah enables us to be part of a more focused online community where we can learn more about wildlife around us and contribute to scientific research. It pulls participants into deeper, more meaningful engagement by enabling people to go on “missions” to collectively map changes based on sightings.
A modern invention that may also hold the key to saving species in the future. Project Noah is a global study that encourages nature lovers to document the wildlife they encounter, using a purpose built phone app and web community. In addition to the virtual "collection" of species, Project Noah encourages citizen science by linking up with existing surveys including the International Spider Survey and the Global Coral Reef Monitoring Network.
