Выражение "пожинать лавры", то есть прославляться, известно всем. Эта фраза пришла к нам из Рима, где проходили гладиаторские игры, победителей которых венчали лавровыми венками. А вот тот факт, что когда-то римляне применяли с этой целью укроп, пожалуй, знает не каждый. Венками зелени семейства зонтичных награждались также призеры конкурсов эрудитов.

А знаменитый писатель Николай Алексеевич Некрасов предпочитал любой суп, в котором содержалось много укропа.

  • 🦋 Spot the difference! 🚫

/ 🦋 On the right ➡️ Heliconius melpomene rosina
•
/ 🦋  On the left ➡️ Heliconius erato demophoon | Same on the second picture 📷

•
One of the most fascinating things about the Heliconius genus 🦋 is the astonishing display of biological mimicry shown between butterflies of different species. This was no accident: it’s an evolutionary strategy known as Müllerian mimicry, after the German naturalist Fritz Müller who first described the phenomenon. •
•
Remember, these butterflies are very distasteful to predators 🕊 because of the toxic compounds they absorb from eating Passiflora 🌿 as caterpillars 🐛 So if they’re brightly coloured, any bird 🕊  that tries to grab a bite (and regrets it) will remember not to go for that flashy one next time! This use of bright colours to signal distastefulness to predators is known as aposematism. •
•
If you’re another distasteful butterfly 🦋 trying not to get eaten, it makes sense to try and blend in with the ones the birds have already learned not to eat, right? Of course, each individual butterfly can’t exactly switch coloration just like that. But millions of years of co-evolution have allowed completely different species to wind up looking pretty similar to make sure their predators know for *sure* they’re not going to enjoy this meal! 🍲

And so our two copycats above: on the left we have Heliconius erato demophoon, and on the right Heliconius melpomene rosina | both found here in Panamá 🇵🇦 Two completely distinct species, same distastefulness to predators, same beautiful wing pattern. Müllerian mimicry in action!

Both pictures were shot by our amazing photographer @mena_sebas 🇪🇨
