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.
The Mary River turtle, Elusor macrurus, is an endangered short-necked turtle that inhabits the Mary River in south-east Queensland, Australia. This Mary River turtle has algae growing on its head, but it doesn't seem to mind. Perfect as a turtle hat!
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.
