---INSECT---

Scientific classification

Kingdom: Animalia

Subkingdom: Eumetazoa

Phylum: Arthropoda

Subphylum: Hexapoda

Class: Insecta

Order: Lepidoptera

Infraorder: Heteroneura

Division: Ditrysia

Superfamily: Zygaenoidea

Family: Zygaenidae

Subfamily: Zygaeninae

Genus: Zygaena Fabricius, 1775

DESCRIPTION

Zygaenid moths are typically day-flying with a slow fluttering flight, and with rather clubbed antennae. They generally have a metallic sheen and often prominent spots of red or yellow. The bright colours are a warning to predators that the moths are distasteful - they contain hydrogen cyanide throughout all stages of their life-cycle. Unlike most insects with such toxins, they obtain glucosides from feeding on Birds-foot Trefoil (Lotus) so that they, themselves can use HCN as a defence. They are known to have mimicry complexes based on these toxins.

Larvae are stout and may be flattened. A fleshy extension of the thorax covers the head. Most feed on herbaceous plants, but there are some tree-feeders. Larvae in two subfamilies, Chalcosiinae and Zygaeninae, have cavities in which they store the cyanide, and can excrete it as defensive droplets.

Merhabalar,
Yabani karanfil üzerinde güveyi güzel çekmişsiniz
renkler ve detaylar çok iyi, selamlar,
Murat

beautiful moth.

Merhaba Volkan, Dianthus üzerine Zygaena güvesi (olasılıkla carniolica) çok hoş kompozisyon oluşturmuşlar. Ellerine sağlık. Bu arada normal görüntü bumu? yoksa dikey döndürdün mü? emin olamadım.
Selamlar ve sevgiler.

Bayram

hello Volkan
very nice pose with good sharpness and beautiful colours
greeting lou

Nicely captured tiny and beautiful Zygaenid moth, Volkan. The composition however is quite challenging for my taste and I would suggest a horizontal position of the frame. Somehow the position on the flower seems unnatural and strange. The subject looks a bit to small in this frame Volkan. May be some gentle cropp can improve the situation in my opinion. Have a great day my friend ! Good valuable notice.
Regards,
George Veltchev

Merhaba Volkan,
İki güzelliği bir arada yakalamışsın. Zygaenidler de güvelerin en güzellerinden.
Çiçeğine bir de Afrika sineği konmuş:)
Eline sağlık,
Ömer.

Ciao Volkan, lovely Zygaena on a beautiful flower, splendid sharpness and wonderful natural colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Merhaba Volkan,
Congratulations for this presentation of an endemic Dianthus, with nice colours and sharpness. The Zygaena is so beautiful too. A closer view could be nice. They are so much Dianthus in Turkey! I still have some without ID. If you can help me... Selam ve sevgiler,
Catherine

Günaydın Volkan, bu adamı ciddiye alma, çok güzel olmuş çekim. Bu fotonun buraya kadar, hangi emeklerden nasıl zaman harcanarak geldiğini algılayacak kapasiteye sahiğ değil. Alan fotoğrafçılığı değil, stüdyo ve pet fotoğrafçılığı yapıyor.
Emek nedir ne bilsin?
Ellerine ve emeğine sağlık.

Bahadır

Merhaba Volkan bey,

Kanat üzerindeki kızıl lekeleri ile çok güzel görünen bir tür.
Bölgeye özgü olması onu daha da özel kılıyor.
Üzerine konduğu çiçek ile de çok güzel kompozisyon oluşturmuşlar.
Eline ve emeğine sağlık.

Selamlar
Mehmet

Muhteşem kompozisyon ve bakış açısı Volkan. Ellerine sağlık.
Özgür

Açıklamalarıyla birlikte değerli bir kare. Ellerine sağlık Volkan hocam.
