These are the flowers of three native Hawaiian plants I observed along the coast near Anaʻehoʻomalu Bay on Big Island. 1- ʻōhelo kai (Lycium sandwicense), 2- ʻaeʻae (Bacopa monnieri), 3- ʻākulikuli (Sesuvium portulacastrum). All have perfect (male & female parts) flowers, but the # of stamen and stigma presentation vary from flower to flower.  Floral details captured with my Olympus TG 5- best point and shoot field camera, hands down 👊🏼 *

The Gentoo on the right has a condition that only occurs in 1 in 10,000 Gentoos and it’s even more rare in other types of penguins. Any guesses what’s it’s called?

It’s restock day again, AND it’s #worldpangolinday!
❥
So here’s my latest little scaley friend (who is still available in my shop, btw), doing his part to spread awareness about these incredible animals!
❥
If you’ll be trying your hand at the restock, remember to check that all your info is up to date in your Etsy account, come a little early to start refreshing the page (the listing will appear at the top of  the main page, no searching needed!), and use your “buy now” button!
❥
***The listing will go up in exactly two hours (it is 12pm PST as I am posting this).***

Oggi si celebra il #WorldPangolinDay, la giornata mondiale dei #pangolini. 🌍

Al mondo esistono 8 specie di pangolini, tutte estremamente minacciate di #estinzione a causa del #bracconaggio e del commercio illegale. 🚫

Ma sono anche #animali estremamente interessanti e particolari, ne ho parlato brevemente nelle storie di oggi. 🤓

Fun Friday with IDEA! Here is a new creation by our Biology club. A living Colorado native moss wall in the shape of our IDEA logo! The intention of this project is to bridge the life sciences with fields of engineering and incorporating design elements, functionality, and be esthetically pleasing. A Hydroponics system was created utilizing a fish tank operating on minimal amounts of water and fish wastes needed to hydrate the plants. Catch up with Kenya and the Biology club for additional Eco projects being created for more peeps interested in joining the fun. #biology #bioeng #bioengineering #moss #mosswall

Fun Fact Friday: Anteaters have fistfuls of knives!
Their paws are tipped with massive, knifelike claws so long + sharp that they have to walk on their knuckles or wrists to avoid stabbing themselves.
Also- how cute is this baby tamandua (a genus of anteaters)??

An Arctic fox (Vulpes lagopus) which had made its home in the largely abandoned Soviet mining settlement of Pyramiden, in Svalbard, keeps a close watch on me.

Despite also being known as the white fox, Arctic foxes, as you might notice, in fact come in widely different colour morphs - and some (but not all) also change colour with the seasons.

SLO: Z učenci OŠ Žirovnica smo na Pokljuki spoznavali živalski svet Triglavskega narodnega parka. Na sprehodu smo iskali sledi živali v snegu in videli, da nismo edini obiskovalci gozdnih poti.🐾🦊❄️ ENG: With the children of elementary school Žirovnica we were learning about the wild animals of Triglav National Park. On the walk in Pokljuka plateau we searched for animal traces in the snow and found out that we are not the only visitors of forest paths.

#ThrowbackThursday: Dr. George E. Lindsay was director of The Nat from 1956 to 1963. Donning glasses and a pith helmet, he’s featured here with former Curator of Botany Reid Moran standing next to a huge cactus in Baja California. Dr. Lindsay developed his fascination with cacti as a child and spent the rest of his life studying, collecting, and describing cactus species. He took his first trip into Baja California at 16, and made many more collecting trips throughout his lifetime. Lindsay combined his research with work as an administrator at three museums—the San Diego Natural History Museum, the California Academy of Sciences, and the Desert Botanical Garden. we have many books in our library donated by Lindsay with his distinctive red and white bookplate inside the cover. If you collect books and were to design your own bookplate, what iconic image would you feature? .

Wasp nests.  Malaysia.  The first one was built on a concrete ceiling. About 4cm.  I think this paper wasp nest is the most beautiful piece of insect construction that I’ve come across — just look at that front door!⠀
⠀
The second shot is a completely different species (also in Malaysia) built along the top of a termite tunnel (about 15cm string of cells). Look closely and you can see that one wasp has her rear end in one of the cells as if laying an egg.  You can also see eggs in some of the other cells and that the wasps have capped at least one cell.  No idea if they are feeding on termites but I would not be surprised.⠀
⠀
Next up are three oddly shaped cells that wasps had built under a leaf — I suspect they are not completed but, if you look closely, you can see their tiny eggs in two of the cells. Unfortunately, the wasps would not pose but they also made no effort to defend their nest. ⠀
⠀
Finally, an absolutely beautiful little potter wasp.  These are made from mud, I believe, and this one was about 1cm tall and was stuck to some sort of grass-like plant with sharp edges and spines.  It is strikingly similar in form (though smaller) than one I found in the US and posted some months back. 
Shot in the field using Olympus OM-D E-M1ii. Lens: Zuiko 60mm. Cheap Godox flash with DIY diffuser.

…. Happily, ice has stopped falling from the sky here & temps are warming up for a couple days before the next round of winter weather comes our way.⠀
ㅤㅤ⠀
This handsome little Tufted Titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor) posed for me during one of our previous winter storms.  They’re year-round residents here & are bold little birds. ⠀
ㅤㅤ⠀
Birds end up getting most of my photographic attention during our winter months while waiting for all the other macro-friendly creatures to show up again. ⠀
ㅤㅤ⠀
Actually, come to think of it, there are creatures still out there for macro shots, but I’m a cold-weather wimp, so they have to wait for me to show up again.⠀
ㅤㅤ⠀
Love this bird's soft gray plumage with that splash of peachy color on the sides of its belly.  This one was kind enough to pose near some Little Bluestem grass (Andropogon scoparius) that matches its belly color nicely.⠀

Virginia. Photos taken of wild critters where I find them. No posing, pestering, or baiting, & aiming to leave no trace. Corrections welcome to my critter IDs. Photo taken with Nikon D750 & Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. Handheld.⠀
