    This scene is close to where I live in Arkansas.
    Local activists are currently fighting the operation of a very polluting hog farm on the beautiful Buffalo river.
    From:Tim Ernst Photography of Arkansas and other wild places
    Quote Mill Pond Sunrise, Boxley Valley Historic District, Buffalo National River, Arkansas.
    This classic image of mine was taken several years ago near our cabin. It was an epic sunrise that was seen by folks in many parts of Arkansas. I hope this scene will brighten up your day and week!

    From: Planet Earth Phenomenon
    Quote Iridient bursting soap bubbles

    Swiss photographer Fabian Oefner has explored the art of the bursting bubble in his project 'iridient'. coaxed through the funnel of a sugar dispenser,
    the soapy air pockets are immortalized in two states: the moment immediately before and after rupturing;
    and the famous spectrum of colors. the artist explains that this combination of timing is extremely challenging and needs a lot of patience.

    Is it possible to get a frog to pose?
    From: I ****ing love science

    Quote You all seemed to really enjoy this spectacular photograph of a frog sheltering from the rain earlier, so here's a few more details.

    The image was taken by Penkdix Palme in Jember, East Java, in Indonesia. According to the photographer the frog actually angled the leaf towards the rainfall to provide maximum shelter, and remained there for approximatelt 30 minutes.

    From Wimp.com
    Quote 2000-year-old tree in South Africa is known as the tree of life (Baobab)


    I hadn't seen photos of ancient yew trees before, so this impressed me. And then I found this lovely photo:


    Back in April, I posted a channeled message about sacred trees here:
    http://projectavalon.net/forum4/show...James-Tyberonn
    Here is an excerpt from that message:
    "Quote We tell you that the Giant Sequoia and Redwood were once hallowed by ancient, more enlightened people, including those of Atlantis and LeMuria. Hallowed not as a commodity or resource, but as intelligent Divine beings, in much the same way in which the Druids revered the Oak, Holly and Yew. For these are among the highest expressions of the realm of Trees; indeed such trees have the capacity of not only collective energy, but are capable of individual awareness. "

    It's always a good time to remember our friends, the trees...

    Quote check this little guy out from down under ...

    "Courtship display of the Coastal peacock spider (Maratus speciosus). Hard to believe, but there is not footage of this species yet in any wildlife documentary. It inhabits coastal dune habitats near Perth in Western Australia. Filmed with Canon 60D and 100 mm macro lens."

    YouTube channel, 'Smarter Every Day'
    finds himself in the Amazon to study
    a remarkable caterpillar that creates
    a very different, hanging-cage pupa
    in which to metamorphose into a moth.

    The Amazon is surely full of so many

    Quote The ‘Underwater Waterfall’ Illusion at Mauritius Island

    From: Amazing World

    Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of the African continent. Mauritius was first discovered by the Arabs in 975 AD, then by the Portuguese between 1507 and 1513. Since then there have been periods of succession and colonization between the French, Dutch and British. The island became a republic in 1968.

    Located at the Southwestern tip of the island you will find a fascinating illusion. When viewed from above, a runoff of sand and silt deposits creates the impression of an ‘underwater waterfall’. Satellite views (as seen in the Google Maps screenshots below) are equally dramatic, as an underwater vortex seemingly appears off the coast of this tropical paradise.
