Rough Greensnake catching an orbweaver spider. It got close to the web and then stayed there for what felt like 10 minutes (not sure it was waiting to figure out how to catch the spider or because I had disturbed it). After a while, it finally caught the spider and seemed to have no trouble eating it. My first time seeing a wild snake catch its prey!

Pseudoscorpion & its babies !
These tiny creatures are really amazing to watch. Other day I posted how these false scorpions carry their eggs, like a bunch of grapes on its back.
Here i got continuation of that , Where Mother pseudoscorpion is carrying its juvenile on dorsum of abdomen & few more are there on its ventral side.
I was not able to capture better than this as pseudoscorpions are restless creatures & they never sit when exposed to sunlight. They always move in search of the dark. These Arachnids have the unique strength of moving both forward & backward.
This makes us very difficult to capture . I am sharing three record photos,to showcase its maternal care.
ಹುಸಿಚೇಳಿನ ಬಗೆಗೆ ನಾನು ಈ ಹಿಂದೆ ನಿಮಗೆ ತಿಳಿಸಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ನಮ್ಮ ಜೇನು ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯೊಳಗೆ , ಜೇನ್ನೊಣದ ಜೊತೆಗೆ ಇವು ಜೀವನ ನಡೆಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಪ್ರಕೃತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಇವು ಮರದ ತೊಗಟೆಯ ಅಡಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ವಾಸಿಸುತ್ತವೆಯಾದ್ದರಿಂದ ಇವು ಹೊರಜಗತ್ತಿಗೆ ಕಾಣುವುದೇ ಇಲ್ಲ.
ಈ ಅಷ್ಟಪದಿಯ ಅಧ್ಯಯನಕ್ಕೆ ಒಂದು ರೀತಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ನಮ್ಮ ಜೇನು ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯೇ ಸೂಕ್ತ .
ತಿಂಗಳಿಗೊಮ್ಮೆ ನಾನು ನಮ್ಮ ತೋಟದಲ್ಲಿನ ಜೇನುಪೆಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯ ಕೆಲಸಕ್ಕೆ ಕೈ ಹಾಕಿದಾಗ ನನಗೆ ಈ ಹುಸಿಚೇಳುಗಳ ದರ್ಶನವಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಕ್ಯಾಮೆರಾ ಸದಾ ಜೊತೆಗಿರುತ್ತದೆ. ಇವು ಸದಾ ಕತ್ತಲಿನಲ್ಲಿ ಬದುಕುವ ಜೀವಿಗಳು. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ನಾವು ಜೇನು ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಯನ್ನು ತೆಗೆದೊಡನೆ, ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯಲ್ಲಿರುವ ಸೆರೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಹೋಗಿ ಅಡಗಿಬಿಡುತ್ತವೆ.
ಮೊನ್ನೆಯೂ ಹಾಗೆ ಆಯ್ತು.
ಜೇನು ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯ ಒಳಗೆ ಹುಸಿಚೇಳೊಂದು ಈಗ ತಾನೇ ಮೊಟ್ಟೆಯಿಂದ ಹೊರ ಬಂದ ಮರಿಯನ್ನು ಬೆನ್ನ ಮೇಲೆ ಕುರಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಿತ್ತು. ಹೊಟ್ಟೆಯ ಕೆಳಗೆ, ದ್ರಾಕ್ಷಿ ಗೊಂಚಲಿನಂತೆ ಮೊಟ್ಟೆಗಳಿದ್ದವು ಮತ್ತು ಆ ಮೊಟ್ಟೆಗಳಿಂದ ಮರಿಗಳು ಹೊರಬರಲು ಆರಂಭಿಸಿದ್ದವು.
ಈ ಅಪರೂಪದ ಕ್ಷಣಗಳನ್ನು ದಾಖಲಿಸಲು ಅನೇಕ ಸವಾಲುಗಳು.
ಹುಸಿಚೇಳು ಕತ್ತಲೆಯನ್ನು ಹುಡಿಕಿಕೊಂಡು, ವೇಗವಾಗಿ ಚಲಿಸುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಇವುಗಳು ಹಿಂದೆ, ಮುಂದೆ ಅಡ್ಡಡ್ಡ ಚಲಿಸುವ ಸಾಮ್ರಾಥ್ಯ ಹೊಂದಿದೆ. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ಇದನ್ನು ಫೋಕಸ್ಪೆ ಮಾಡುವುದು ಬಲು ಕಷ್ಟ. ಜೇನು ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಯೊಳಗಣ ಜೇನ್ನೊಣಗಳು ನನ್ನ ಸುತ್ತ ಹಾರುತ್ತಿದ್ದವು. ಯಾವಾಗ ಚುಚ್ಚುವುದೋ ಎಂಬ ಭಯ ಒಂದು ಕಡೆಯಾದರೆ, ಕಾಲಿಗೆ ಕುತ್ತುವ ಸೊಳ್ಳೆಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಕಚ್ಚುವ ಕೆಂಜುಗಗಳು ಇನ್ನೊಂದುಕಡೆ .
ಇವೆಲ್ಲದರ ಮಧ್ಯೆ ನನಗೆ ಮೂರೇ ಮೂರೂ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು ಸಿಕ್ಕವು. ಅಷ್ಟು ಹೊತ್ತಿಗೆ ಈ ಹುಸಿ ಚೇಳು ತನ್ನ ಮಕ್ಕಳೊಡನೆ ಪೆಟ್ಟಿಗೆಯ ಸೆರೆಯೊಳಗೆ ಅವಿತುಬಿಟ್ಟಿತ್ತು.
ಚಿತ್ರೀಕರಿಸಿದ ಆ ಮೂರೂ ಚಿತ್ರಗಳು ಇದೋ ಇಲ್ಲಿದೆ ನಿಮಗಾಗಿ.
