Manduca sexta, Caterpillar

medical illustration of A semen of the common Agrimony. From the dusted blossoms of the common Agrimony grow barbed fruits. The fruits get stuck in the fur of roaming big mammals and are spread about big distances (epichory). The blossoms are modestly designed flowers. They allure hoverflies, flies, and honey bees to pollination with their plentiful pollen offer.

Next medical illustration of Papilio belongs to the impressive Swallowtail butterflies or Nymphalidae. The surface of a wing scale displays very fine veins. The inside of this scale is made up of many layers of chitin that have an exactly defined, same distance to each other. If light hits on it, a strong, green iridescence originates from interferences inside the scale.
