This moth, first time for me, was spotted at Karzi-Mangnam, West Sikkim, one of the remotest villages in our state. I'd taken my family to show them how does it feel like reaching there (adventurous roads, first road came in 2004), living there and experiencing their lives.
The trip indeed was fruitful, despite the back-breaking journey, I managed to photograph some extraordinary moths, like this one.

Description

First known wild observations and discovery of natural fluorescent in an old world mammal or any mammal outside of North and Central America, images of the Springhare taken in August 2019. Incredible to see it’s orange and pink glow firsthand, especially when it wasn’t expected! Accidental discovery whilst out photographing scorpions under UV light

Shot using a Nikon D850 Handheld with a Nitecore Chameleon C6 ( 365nm ) torch.

For anyone interested in February 2020 a Scientific journal was released by a American research group ( no relation to me ) about this UV trait and science behind it from research in museum & zoo specimens in the US.

There are a few more images, but you might be able to imagine photographing a rather skittish nocturnal creature on foot with a UV torch in one hand and a large DSLR in the other during a unexpected encounter whilst also trying to expose a camera correctly for UV light isn’t the easiest thing to do the split second.

A life species for me! This little squirrel was digging seeds out of the snow under the bird feeder. I've thought we might have flying squirrels here because sometimes late at night, we hear the typical sounds of red or gray squirrels racing along the outside of our log cabin walls, but likely not either of those diurnal species.

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.
