285. Stage For Fight Or Death

2010.10.13
pixel

Rhynocoris erythropus aka Assassin Bug

Bombus terrestris aka Bombus terrestris

The lands or the floor of our houses or even outside of it are places of everyday for fights and deaths and even survivals. Outside home, usually when you see a bug which should be flying is not a good signal.
For example the 1# is a very mean one, usually is seen near bugs to kill them. this one I was really wow, because It was the first time I saw one live, and I didn't imagine it was so big!it usually kills the bugs and eat them.
About the bumble bee, even if they do the nests on the lands, if you find one very calm on the floor , there is only 2 reasons to it be like that. 1 is it has its wings wet, so it cant fly. 2. it was poisoned and its dizzy. in this one, was poisoned, since minutes after I take this picture it got crazy and fell backside and died.

elizzi nature gives us such sad stories but they make sense most of the time..I've seen loads of dead bumblebees lying in my garden..

misty Olá amigo. A Abelha eu já conhecia, lá no sítio existem várias espécies, mas o "Matador" lá de cima, ainda não tinha visto, ou melhor, penso que nunca vi! Valeu!
