These are a collection of pictures around here and there

This is a flower was in someone's house

A young fly
These three pictures shows , how they pollinate the date palm , they took the male and take it a part , then they dry it for a while , after that they put it beside the female , so that the powder inside the male go to the female..usually they take between five to six pieces and put at the female palm.

This is the Cucurbitaceae , citrullus colocythis , English name: Bitter gourd and Desert squash..but this pictures when it's flowering.

This is a weird one , i found like that color , it looks strange to me!!

This is a part of one of the forts located in Qattara oasis

The same as the above

Red palm weevil


This is a Rhynchophorus ferrugineus, the red palm weevil is a species of beetle. It is relatively large, between two and five centimeters long, and a rusty red colour. Its larvae excavate holes up to a metre long in the trunk of palm trees, and can kill the host plant. As a result, the beetle is a pest of palm plantations of palms such as the coconut palm, date palm or oil palm.[2] Originally from tropical Asia, the red palm weevil has spread to Africa and Europe, reaching the Mediterranean in the 1980s, and was first recorded in Spain in 1994 and in France in 2006.

Bee and It's Pollen


These are a collection of Bee and its pollen pictures..

This is the first time for me to know that the Bee take the pollen and put it on that way..!!

All i knew before that they take it form the flower..but i nver wonder how!!

So just now , i knew how they did it and how they make it .., it was as a surprise for me to know that they do it like that..

and because of this's open my mind into many Questions like :

How they make it ? , how they put at the back? , how they can hold it? , how they can fly with it? , how they can know when its heavy ? , Do they take a specific amount? , Is each bee do the same? , How they can put the same amount in each leg? , .......etc

so right now , i am all EXCITED to try to find all these answers.

I might have some of the answers on Friday as we (the ENHG) will do a trip and then i can ask our group..

hope you like them..
