I saw 2 pairs of single species butterflies entangled in a cobweb looking dead but uneaten. My greed led me to collect one butterfly as a specimen. To my surprise they were all alive. But how did they stay there in pairs and how long?
This unknown species was on sale by local hawkers for Rs. 10/- per bunch. It looked dry as in pictures 3 & 4 but when it comes in contact with water it turns to green. What a magic! :))
This fly and the ant were in a 'tug of war' for something. At last they go away but the ant goes as if it was 'bitten' by the fly.

Pileated woodpecker nest in a telephone pole near Snug Harbour (Georgian Bay), Ontario. They've become quite a destructive force in the area, choosing to nest in telephone poles instead of trees, despite an abundance of living and dead trees in the area.
This just seemed disturbing to me. Starlings eating fried chicken. Poor things. They didn't seem to mind though. The buses would go by, they would fly off and come right back.
