Photograph Captures Two 'Dryas Iulia' Butterflies Drinking the Tears of Turtles in Ecuador

Two Julia Butterflies (Dryas iulia) drinking the tears of turtles (Podocnemis expansa?) in Ecuador. The turtles placidly permit the butterflies to sip from their eyes as they bask on a log. This "tear-feeding" is a phenomenon known as lachryphagy.

An amazing shot of two ‘Dryas Iulia’ butterflies drinking the tears of turtles. The unusual behavior is called 'lachryphagy' (literally, tear drinking), and is one of several ways butterflies obtain moisture and nutrients.  Colossal.

This is a photograph captured by Ama la Vida TV, of two Julia Butterflies drinking turtles' tears in Ecuador. The behavior, known as lachryphagy (tear-feeding), is most common in moths and butterflies. Plus me -- I drink tears.

So many cool pictures of turtles out there!!

Hawksbill Sea Turtle - Location: Tropical reefs of the Indian, Pacific, and Atlantic oceans. (classified as Critically Endangered (CR) by the IUCN Red List)

Reason #4 for being endangered: The green turtle continues to be hunted and its eggs harvested. Much of that is for human consumption, but trade of turtle parts remains a profitable business. In West Africa, sea turtles are killed for use in medicine and some traditional ceremonies.
