Battus philenor, the Pipevine Swallowtail🦋
🐛
In the second video, you can see a common butterfly behavior known as “puddling”. When puddling, butterflies seek nutrient-rich sources in moist substances like mud, carrion and decaying organic matter. From these fluids, they gather salts and amino acids; in this particular case, they are lapping up the the salty sweat water from the palm of a hand. 🐛
Have you seen this behavior before? Let me know in the comments below!!.

@nature_nj It’s #NationalMothWeek, which I’m extremely excited for, especially since this year I’ve been doing a lot of research on Moths; trying to learn more on these amazing species that play an important role for a healthy ecosystem. This Cecropia Moth, hatched out right from the Sourland Mountain area, an important area in central #NewJersey, known for its unique wildlife. Make sure to follow @nature_nj this week for more #moths!.

This is a small damselfly or zygoptera if you are fancy. These insects are very closely related to dragonflies, but the damselflies are smaller, thinner and their eyes tend to be spread apart in contrast to most dragonflies which have their eyes located closely together. Both the damselflies and the dragonflies are predators and eat things like flies and mosquitoes. So if you see one of these beautiful insects, say thank you, they are literally hunting down and killing some of the other insects that annoy you!
