Beautiful Photos Of Colorful Butterflies On Flowers

Butterflies are a common sight in many gardens, pollinating and feeding on a wide range of flowers.

Those beautiful creatures have an amazing range of color preferences between the various species, but as a general rule, flowers that are white, pink, purple, red, yellow and orange attract the most butterflies. Blue to green flowers are universally the least favorite flower color. Some evidence indicates that butterflies may learn which color flowers tend to produce their favorite types of nectar, using color as a visual cue when hunting for these plants.

We have collected some photos of this wonderful combination between flowers and butterflies.

People Can't Decide Which Zebra Is Facing The Camera In This Viral Photo

It all started with a simple question on twitter: which of the two zebras in this photo is in front, facing the camera, the left or the right one?

The Indian Wildlife photographer, Sarosh Lodhi, took this photo of two zebras in the Maasai Mara national game reserve in Kenya, and it went viral. 

As you can see from the following comments, people had a hard time deciding...What do you think?

Photos Show That People Were Riding Zebras In The Late 19th And Early 20th Centuries

A new photo archive by Vintag.es shows that some of the European colonizers penetrating Africa in the 19th and early 20th centuries were riding wild zebras as an alternative to horses. 

The reason behind it is the zebra's resistance to diseases carried by tsetse flies which made their domestication more attractive.  

However, as many European colonizers learned in the early 20th century, despite their similarity to horses, zebras are just a bit too wild to completely tame. 

Unlike horses, which naturally roam around munching on grass, zebras spend their lives cagily watching, evading and fighting savannah predators such as lions, cheetahs and crocodiles. Natural selection has bred zebras to be nervous, flighty and brutally aggressive if cornered. 

But taming individual zebras to perform horse-like duties has occasionally been successful. Lord Walter Rothschild, for instance, trained a team of zebras to pull a carriage, which he drove past Buckingham Palace to demonstrate their supposedly pliable nature.

Seventeen Examples Of Animals Getting By With a Little Help From Their Friends

Childhood television programs have popularized the theory of frienemy with Tom & Jerry and Tweety Bird and Sylvester of Looney Tunes. 

We have learned It is a game of domination on the hierarchy of animals, not of friendship.

But the animals proved us wrong. 

As you can see from the following images, animals do help other types of animals as well as their own. 

They reach others when they need it, without any prey, predators, companions, or enemies' roles. 

Turns out, love knows no bounds in the animal world as well.
