Love of Lepidoptera

 The Lemon Emigrant belongs to the Pieridae sect.
 The Common Cerulean belongs to Lycanidae sect.
 Euthalia aconthea likes to savour fallen fruit.
 The Red Eye Skipper belongs to the Hespiridae sect.
 The Lime Butterfly loves the scent of lemon grass.
The name Lepidoptera is derived from the Greek words "Lepido" for scales and "Ptera" for wings. It refers to the flat scales that cover the body and wings of adult butterflies and moths.  The colourful scales which cover the wings play an important role in recognition, and courtship. It also helps in camouflage to escape from predators.

  13. What I find interesting is that there was another famous case where large numbers of people disagreed with the verdict, the OJ Simpson trial. However he moved to Florida, got a house in the suburbs, sent his children to school, and for a few years at least resumed somewhat of a normal life. No one bothered him, threatened him, or harassed him. (tags: Coach Outlet Store Online , Michael Kors Bags Sale, Coach Outlet Store, MK Outlet)

    Boston's own Ross Miner did a smooth, well choreographed, classic program set to "The Way We Were." The program was flawed only by one popped jump, and it cost him in the scoring. His overall flow and spins were nicely done. Miner is sitting in eighth place, out of the running for Sochi.. (tags: Cheap Real Yeezys, Discount Jordan Shoes Wholesale, Cheap Yeezys)

    This requires good breath support. But many people take inadequate breaths. A truly good breath of air causes the abdomen to expand when a deep breath is taken. Senate Democrats fought an uphill battle at Kavanaugh's confirmation hearings this week as they tried to depict him as an opponent of abortion rights and a likely defender of President Donald Trump. Democrats see their best shot at blocking his appointment as branding him as a justice who might vote to overturn the high court's landmark Roe v. Wade ruling, in hopes that two GOP senators who support abortion rights will break from their party and oppose him (tags: Jordan Shoes For Sale Cheap, 2020 Jordan Release Dates, Ray Ban Sunglasses Outlet).
