Duck pondering the idea that, if you give the top level of government to a bunch of billionaires and the first thing they do is take away people’s health care, using job lock-in to prevent them from exploring entrepreneurial opportunities, that maybe that alone is proof that trickle down economics doesn’t work.
These are Atlantic triton snail eggs. There’s no joke here because snail eggs are just cool. Look at the cool snail eggs.
This is the mouth on the “apple”.
Once upon a time, a naturalist saw these and thought “apples”.
I like to imagine early naturalists as people who’d wander around testing random stuff to see if it was edible and, as a result, were constantly tripping as they named things.

You’ve probably heard that the levels of anti-depressant and birth control chemicals in the oceans are on the rise, but did know that was true for lip-plumpers as well?
“Unfunny! Total Loser! Hoax! Lock her up! Fake News!”
Politics makes a lot more sense when you remember that humans are apes.
This fish is a rebel and doesn’t give a fin about your so-call “rules” of artistic composition.
After watching Toy Story 2 and 3 last week, this fish is still trying to figure out why the dinosaur, pig, and slinky-dog can all talk, but Woody’s horse can’t.
“How does a cannibal eat an elephant?”
Caption not funny enough? Try this one:
I am proud to present our new Director of Vision for the use of Land and Air (pending confirmation).
This rhinoceros has observed that it is easier to unify under hate than nuance and politely suggests that educated people re-evaluate their political strategies.
Quiz time! These fish are called “archer” fish because:
i) When they get excited, they quiver.
*) During breeding season, they make a noise that sounds like “Phrasing!”
c) The odds are ever in their favor.
4) They shoot insects with jets of water.
д) Their long lives pass like swift draughts of the sweet mead.
ζ) They are unhealthily obsessed with the death of their city.
After being told that there were parrots in the tree, it still took me quite a while to find them. One doesn’t ordinarily think of brightly coloured birds as being so well camouflaged.
Another view of that tree, this time with the high tide and in the visible spectrum.
This moth was feeding in a flower in the early morning. I was about three meters away … and three meters below it. I was shooting hand-held.
This is one of those shots that really should not have been possible
When you genetically photoshop a snake onto a dragon, you get an iguana.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
This is a sandbank that is entirely underwater half of the day, due to tides. The tree roots helps keep it together.
The constant movement of the tides creates an interesting dappled texture that is much more noticeable in the deep infrared.
Taken with my low-light camera in rather lower light than it was designed for.
As I’ve said before, it never really gets too dark for photography. It just gets progressively more impressionistic outside.
