Exotic weevils, such as Calandra, showcase the fascinating metamorphoses of nature. From the intricate engraving of 'The Metamorphoses palmarum' to the diverse species like Eudomychus striata 1 and Chrysomela arcuata 6, these weevils captivate with their unique beauty. Even the pleasing fungus beetle and Acalymma vittatum 5 add a touch of intrigue to this insect world. However, amidst this wonder lies a hell on Earth for some plants as leaf beetles feast upon them relentlessly. Yet, in contrast to this chaos, there is harmony found in the presence of Corn Bunting (Miliaria calandra ssp calandra). This majestic bird graces Hungary's landscapes with its adult form Emberiza calandra while also making appearances in Mallorca and Croatia. Witnessing these creatures reminds us that even within adversity, there is still room for breathtaking beauty.
