Lagartas
As lagartas ou taturanas (tata=fogo, rana=semelhante) são larvas de um grupo de insetos conhecido como Lepidópteros (lepido=escamas, ptera=asa). Este grupo abrange as borboletas e mariposas, que são os indivíduos adultos.
Quando se acasalam, põem os ovos em uma planta da qual as lagartas irão se alimentar. Nesta fase as lagartas trocam de pele diversas vezes até formarem um casulo no qual irão sofrer metamorfose para se transformar em uma borboleta ou mariposa, recomeçando o ciclo de vida.
Nem todas as lagartas possuem veneno. Apenas as lagartas de mariposa podem causar acidentes, o chamado erucismo (eruca=larva; erucismo é o envenenamento causado por uma larva de mariposa). O contato com as lagartas causa queimadura e dor, não havendo lesões mais graves, exceto quando o acidente ocorre com Lonomia obliqua, a qual pode causar um quadro hemorrágico.
No Brasil existem aproximadamente 50.000 espécies de Lepidópteros, mas as principais espécies de importância médica são apenas 16 e pertencem a quatro famílias: Saturniidae, Megalopygidae, Actiidae e Limacodidae.

Anne

Fotografia exuberante, Nilson! Uma verdadeira sinfonia em tons de verde, uma bela lagarta com camuflagem projetos impressionante, alto brilho. Ele reflete toda a alegria do Brasil.
Parabéns, companheiro!

PD: Um Brasil; irmão Nilson nesta argentino incapaz de viajar nesta temporada de férias. A inflação faz com que este desvalorizado a nossa moeda e todos nós caro.
Só para você saber, eu aprendi a amar o seu país, tanto quanto o meu. O seu povo, o seu mar, sua alegria, que alegria nunca terá meu país melancolia ... Um país de tristezas; tango; bagualas; vidalas e chacareras fantasmagóricas.

Excellent photo of this caterpillar in beautiful light and camouflaged colours. Good sharpness and details. Maybe a bit tiny within the frame.

Hi Nilson,
Nice camouflage and a perfectly composed photo. Such a pity the focus is a little soft and my opinion is a big NO to the green canvas... It ruins the overall view of an otherwise acceptable image. Please be more careful with the frames next time.
Best regards, László
