Butterfly- Tiger Longwing

Decide whether the butterfly is telling the truth when it says "I am nasty to eat"- Internet
Do you think this beauty is poisonous? Orange Tiger Longwing (Heliconius hecale) is one of the beautiful and busy butterflies. These are native to Central America and have longer life than usual 2-3 weeks. Like other Longwings they digest pollens to gain proteins for longer life! They are poisonous and hence predators leave them alone- another reason for longer life!

Here on, I will post a Weekly Photo which I will try to keep close to nature. I have always been amazed by the way of nature and I would like to share my thoughts and experiences with it ... of course some facts picked from wiki as always :)

On Dynamic View template- 

I received tens of private emails on 'not able to comment' on the new Dynamic View blogger template. I have tweaked the code a bit (thanks to internet tutorials) and now you should be able to see 'Post a comment' link. Make sure you scroll down after clicking on the link! Thank you for letting me know!

Though there is a lot on internet about unfriendliness of Dynamic Views, I find them very attractive. Good for simple personal blogs with not many badges and gadgets hanging around. If you have any trouble getting around please shoot me an email and I will try to sort it out!

BTW, this post is linked to NatureFootStep- Winged.
