Rainyday☔️

I am SO sick of these rainy days - I've got cabin fever! It's worse when the kids have cabin fever though, oh gosh all of the whining 😭 The world is a cruel Mistress - we buy the kids bikes or scooters which they can't use for half of the New Zealand year 🤣 not without getting the phones that they desperately wanted, wet anyway 🤪 #rain #winter #umbrella #puddle #yellow #pink #hellokitty #cabinfever #toowetoutside #ihatewinter #foffwinter #iwantsummer #😭 #stircrazy #rainydays #wetweather

#puddle #fatto!!! 😉 Cercavo il mare calmo e ho trovato TE @ever_fra 😂

Reflections on a city street

Adventure ✨💚

#Repost @mental_wildlife (@get_repost) ・・・ Butterflies 'mud-puddling' crocodile tears #mental_wildlife Mud-puddling, or simply puddling, is a behaviour most conspicuous in butterflies, but occurs in other animals as well, mainly insects; they seek out certain moist substances such as rotting plant matter, mudand carrion and they suck up the fluid. Where the conditions are suitable, conspicuous insects such as butterflies commonly form aggregations on wet soil, dung or  carrion. Mud-puddling has been observed many times on crocodiles and tortoises. From the fluids they obtain  nutrients such as salts and amino acids that play various roles in their physiology, ethology and ecology. This behaviour also has been seen in some other insects, notably the leafhoppers, e.g. the potato leafhopper. Lepidoptera (butterflies and moths) are diverse in their strategies to gather liquid nutrients. Typically, mud-puddling behavior takes place on wet soil. But even sweat on human skin may be attractive to butterflies such as species of Halpe. More unusual sources include blood and tears. Again, similar behaviour is not limited to the Lepidoptera, and for example, the various species of bees commonly called sweat beesare attracted to various kinds of sweat and tears, including that of humans, and other bee species have been recorded as doing so to various degrees.
