One of my weak-point is spider. There is not appearing so as to say that I dislike a spider, but it is the existence that is hard to approach it. I am not good at creature that has over six feet of design. (especially, quick crectures…) Therefore, do I like snakes? Because the snake’s foot is 0…

For about two months, the jumping spider what’s japanese named Misuji-hae-tori (Mean:Three lined jumping spider) (Plexippus setipes) began to live in my house. In jumping spider’s species, most is less than 1cm in the size. And, they splash hopping. Misuji-hae-tori of my home runs after and turns the mouse pointer on the display in my computer surroundings. (It might be thought that it is insect. )

The jumping spider seems to be small, and to have the charm also by movement quite different from a big spider and the face. It is a ceature interesting when often observing it. This photograph is Neko-hae-tori (Carrhotus xanthogramma). When I was taking a picture in the outdoors, I found her, and my eyes and her eyes were matched.

There are four eyes when often seeing though her eyes are lovely round eyes. In saltigrade (Jumping spider), there was the thing which had various expressions, but this Neko-haetori was particular prettiness. She got tired after a while or became scary? She moved the mandible (place like the beard), and seemed to complain. And, it romped about soon in the jungle of the leaf and it left. For my photography, thank you for acquaintance!

Elaphe climacophora
Japanese Rat Snake

Photograph by Baikada (ばいかだ)

Japanese Rat Snake is good at going up the tree. It is only at a part that sees though a lot and not learnt by them.

They climb the tree, and eat bird’s chick. Some bird fanciers and bird’s those who keep hate Japanese Rat Snake. However, may we have a grudge against them?
The bird that has put the nest that is defenceless might be bad for the place to which the Japanese Rat Snake can go. The owner who has left the bird cage in the place to which the Japanese Rat Snake can go might be bad. I do buck-passing and may regard Japanese Rat Snake with hostility? Human hearts are difficult…

Recently, various problems are brought up of creature and human’s relations. I become complex feelings in every case. Related to at all and it is likely to be able to do to each life well regardless of such a thing between Japanese Rat Snake and Flea (Siphonaptera).

Will the flea on Japanese Rat Snake’s nose go out to travel?

Antler fall out

Cervus nippon yesoensis
Yezo Sika-deer

There was male Yezo Sika-deer without one of antlers in summer. Was he some accidents? Was there change to a morbid state around his antler?

When knowing for the first time, I was surprised. It is for a male antler of Sika-deer including subspecies Yezo Sika-deer to fall out in the spring of every year. And, it grows again. I did not know that such a big antler molted every year. I picked up teir antlers in the river. And I think, “Is here a graveyard of Yezo Sika-deer?”. However, any skull had not dropped. I was misunderstanding it.

I studied that, and met Yezo Sika-deer without one of antlers. It might have been convinced that his horn had not grown any longer when I was before. However, I was able to be seen in another aspect this time.

“Had his antler grown next year?”

Carcass that disappears

Nipponolimax monticola
English name is unkown

The shell is lovely. The snail is a tolerance. The cowfish is lovely. However, slug is unpleasant… These might be your opinions. This photograph might be most unpleasant in slug. It is jet-black slug. When seeing for the first time, I was terribly surprised. When it might be a creature with a lot of negative images, but I have liked it very much.

Yama-koura-namekuji is this kind recorded in the red data book on Japan. Maybe it isn’t found easily. It has not understood from the dearth of information well though I variously examined. “It is only in West Japan.” “There is a possibility of the import kind.” “It is not unusual.” It is not all information that can finish being trusted. However, “It is in the marsh in the vicinity of the high mountain belt” was common. From such a reason, it might be not amusing even in case of the location of him in Ome where I live.

Why information on him become complicated? The creature dies. They teach us a lot of information by the carcass’s its becoming a bone, and remaining. However, moisture evaporates when dying and the carcass doesn’t remain in slug. Therefore, the investigation in various places often seems to end by “Dearth of information” about slug.

However, the camera attaches to the mobile phone now. Various people came to be able to leave information. As a result, living of various creatures will be confirmed.
It is necessary to make a mark for me not to be defeated at everyone and either to live with the camera. I want to take the ecology photographs other than the egg laying time some time. However, I think that the photograph where the charm of the living thing is told is good. I will variously take the photograph.
