Photo of a very tiny orange cup mushroom with tiny hair at the edge of it's cup rim. If it don't look like a cup to you, then it must look like a dish.


Cheers

Rambutan - Nephelium lappaceum

The rambutan (Nephelium lappaceum) is a medium-sized tropical tree in the family Sapindaceae, and the fruit of this tree. It is probably native to Southeast Asia (including Borneo), although its precise natural distribution is unknown. It is closely related to several other edible tropical fruits including the Lychee, Longan and Mamoncillo. Rambutan in Indonesian or Malay literally means hairy or hairy fruit caused by the 'hair' that covers this fruit. In Panama, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua, it is known as mamón chino.

Wild sex - Mating orange bugs

Another photo series on wild sex (or insect pornography). These are photo of leave bugs caught on my camera having their private moments.

Borneo bugs mate every time and you just need to have a closer look at those little leaves in the bushes or dead leaves on the jungle floor and you will find them locking together. Spotting them can be difficult at times due to their camouflage colour which is similar with their surrounding.

The photo below however presents a contrasting background with the mating bugs having a bright color of red head, orangery body and wings and with black spots/mark, black belly with white stripes.

Giant Asia millipede - Archispirostreptus gigas

Archispirostreptus gigas, the giant African millipede, is one of the largest of the millipedes, growing up to 11 in (28 cm) in length. It lives in tropical and subtropical Africa, in rotting plant life or moist earth, and usually avoids light. It is black in colour, and is often kept as a pet (would you?).

Archispirostreptus gigas, the giant African millipede, is one of the largest of the millipedes, growing up to 11 in (28 cm) in length. It lives in tropical and subtropical Africa, in rotting plant life or moist earth, and usually avoids light. It is black in colour, and is often kept as a pet (would you?).

Millipedes (Class Diplopoda, previously also known as Chilognatha) are arthropods that have two pairs of legs per segment (except for the first segment behind the head which does not have any appendages at all, and the next few which only have one pair of legs). Each segment that has two pairs of legs is a result of two single segments fused together as one.

Most millipedes have very elongated cylindrical bodies, although some are flattened dorso-ventrally, while pill millipedes are shorter and can roll into a ball, like a pillbug. Millipedes are detritivores and slow moving. Most millipedes eat decaying leaves and other dead plant matter, moisturising the food with secretions and then scraping it in with the jaws.

Millipedes do not actually have a thousand legs - they usually have between 100-400 (2 sets of legs per body segment). Each time they molt, they add more segments and therefore more legs. Male millipedes have specialized legs used for fertilization on the seventh body segment called gonopods.

Lemon flower photo

This post is about some close up photo shot of lemon flower. Lemon fruit is the common name for (Citrus limon). The reproductive tissue surrounds the seed of the angiosperm lemon tree. The lemon is used for culinary and nonculinary purposes throughout the world. The fruit is used primarily for its juice, though the pulp and rind (zest) are also used, primarily in cooking and baking. Lemon juice is about 5% (approximately 0.03 moles/Liter) citric acid, which gives lemons a tart taste, and a pH of 2 to 3. This makes lemon juice an inexpensive, readily available acid for use in educational science experiments.
