Little Wings (Hummingbird Hawk Moth)

  1. 1. There aren’t many, if any, tongues that can do that and it has a different function. What that amazing body part is called is a proboscis. That is the name given to an extended appendage from the head of an animal.No hay muchas, si hay alguna, las lenguas que pueden hacerlo, tienen una función diferente. ¿Qué parte asombrosa delcuerpo se llama probóscide? Ese es el nombre dado a un apéndice prolongado de la cabeza de un animal.
  2. 2. This elongated organ is for sucking and it is also known as a haustellum. It is made up of two tubes that are held together by hooks. Strangely, these tubes can be separated, unhooked, when the moth needs to clean it.Este órgano alargado es para la succión, y también conocido como un haustellum. Se compone de dos tubos que se mantienenjuntos por medio de ganchos. Extrañamente, estos tubos se pueden separar, desengancharse, cuando la polilla necesita limpiarlos.
  3. 3. Each tube is concave on the inner side and thismeans that when they come together they form acentral tube, and this is what the Hummingbird HawkMoth (Macroglossum stellatarum) uses to suck uppollen as well as moisture. Cada tubo es cóncavo en el lado interno, y esto significa que cuando se unen forman un tubo central, es lo que el colibrí polilla Hawk (Macroglossum stellatarum) utiliza para aspirar polen, así como la humedad.
  4. 4. How is the suction actually made? It has a sac in its head and it contacts and expands this sac. When this happens the suction simply happens.¿Cómo se produce en realidad la aspiración? El cuenta con una bolsa en la cabeza que laconecta y amplía. Cuando esto ocurre, la succión simplemente sucede.
  5. 5. Most Lepidoptera have this type of proboscis. Some though, do not have mouth parts at all and so do not feed in the imago (the adult form). There are some though have mouth parts which are used to chew.La mayoría de los lepidópteros tienen este tipo de probóscide. Algunos, sin embargo, no tienen partes en la boca en absolutoy por eso no se alimentan en el imago (la forma adulta). Hay otros que tienen partes de la boca y las utilizan para masticar.
  6. 6. Don’t moths come out only at night? That is how we usually think of moths but many species are diurnal. The Hummingbird Hawk Moth goesout at both dusk and at dawn but it is regularly seen flying around during the day, particularly when the sun is shining brightly.¿Las polillas sólo salen de noche? Así es como solemos pensar de las ellas, pero muchas especies son diurnas. El colibrí polillaHawk sale al anochecer y al amanecer, pero se ve regularmente volando durante el día, sobre todo cuando el sol está brillando.
  7. 7. What is a little different from other moths is that it will not avoid rain and is quitehappy flying during a spell of aqueous precipitation, unless it is too heavy. Hay una pequeña diferencia con otras polillas, es que no evitan la lluvia y son muy felices volando durante una ola de precipitación acuosa, si no es demasiado fuerte.
  8. 8. It is to be found all over the Old World, from the coast of Portugal to the islands of Japan. It doesn’t extend very far north as it likes a warm climate but during the summer months it can be found throughout the hemisphere.Se encuentra por todo el “Viejo Mundo”, desde la costa de Portugal hasta las islas de Japón. No se extiende muy lejos del norteya que le gusta el clima cálido, pero durante los meses de verano se puede encontrar por todo el hemisferio.
  9. 9. As it is migratory it will leave the colder northern areas and retreat towards the south, itwould not survive the winter anywhere north of the Alps of the Caucasus. Como es migratoria, dejará las zonas más frías del norte y retrocederá hacia el sur. No sobreviviría el invierno al norte de los Alpes, en la región del Cáucaso.
  10. 10. Many people think that imago moths will produce a singlebatch of eggs and then flit away somewhere to die quietly,their function performed. Not so the Hummingbird Hawk Moth,which will produce at least two broods of eggs in a year, infact it will lay up to four sets of eggs in a year. Muchas personas piensan que las polillas imago producirán una única masa de huevos y luego volarán a algún lugar para morir tranquilamente, con su función finalizada. No pasa así con el colibrí polilla Hawk, que producen al menos dos nidadas de huevos en un año, de hecho, ponen hasta cuatro grupos de huevos en un año.
  11. 11. It does not hibernate but it is much less active in the colder seasons. It overwinters where it can find a nook or cranny, among rocks,trees and even buildings. If there is a particularly warm day during the winter it will come out and feed. No hibernan, pero son mucho menos activas en las estaciones más frías. Pasan el invierno donde pueden encontrar un rincón o grieta entre las rocas, los árboles e incluso edificios. Si hay un día particularmente cálido durante el invierno, saldrán y se alimentarán.
  12. 12. Ponen sus huevos individualmente. Los huevos verdes, pálidos It lays its eggs singly. Pale and glossy, the green eggsy brillantes tienen un diámetro de sólo un milímetro. have a diameter of only a single millimeter.
  13. 13. They resemble the buds of the host plant Galium and take up to eight days to hatch, camouflaged as they are to look likepart of the general greenery. The female will lay anything up to two hundred eggs, each on a separate plant. Se asemejan a los cogollos de la planta huésped Galium. Tarda hasta ocho días para salir del cascarón, camuflado, para formar parte de la vegetación en su contorno. La hembra pone hasta 200 huevos, cada uno en una planta separada.
  14. 14. With two grey stripes, each with a creamy border and a purply red horn at the end to frighten off would be attackers the larva feeds itself at the top of the host. This stage can last as little as only twenty days, depending on the warmth, and then the caterpillar will be ready to pupate.Con dos rayas grises, cada una con un borde cremoso y un cuerno morado rojizo al final, paraahuyentar a los atacantes. La larva se alimenta de la parte superior de la planta. Esta etapa puededurar tan sólo veinte días, dependiendo del calor, y luego la oruga estará lista para pupar.
  15. 15. When this happens they do not thread themselves on to the plant but drop to the soil and detritus at the base of the plant.Hidden there, they will hopefully emerge safely as the imago. It has evolved, at this stage, to look like something thatnothing would want to eat! Cuando esto ocurre no se enroscan a la planta, sino que caen al suelo y permanecen en la base de la misma. Ocultas allí, esperan para surgir de forma segura como imago. ¡Se ha convertido en esta etapa a algo parecido que nadie quiere comer!
  16. 16. The adults love flowers with an abundance of nectar. These include: Buddleia, Nicotiana and Phlox. The adults do not feed aimlessly, either. They have been seen to trap-line. That means that they return to the same plants at the same time each day.Las adultas aman las flores con abundancia de néctar. Estas incluyen: Buddleia, Nicotiana y Phlox. Las adultas no se alimentan sinun objetivo tampoco. Se les ha visto marcar una línea. Eso significa que vuelven a las mismas plantas, a la misma hora cada día.
  17. 17. Without the help of the Hummingbird Moth many of our popular garden flowers would not be pollinated. The proboscis has developed over time to its current length as the flowers which attract it the most have long, tube-like organs containing their nectar.Sin la ayuda del colibrí polilla, muchas de nuestras flores populares del jardín no podrían ser polinizadas. El probóscide hadesarrollado con el tiempo su longitud actual, al igual que las flores que las atraen, las cuales en su mayoría, tienen unos órganosparecidos a un tubo largo que contienen el néctar.
  18. 18. Evolution loves necessity, it most certainly is the mother of invention. La evolución ama la necesidad, sin duda es la madre de la invención.
