Bird Bobbing

I’m unsure why, but this makes me think of the “bobbing for apples” we used to do as children.

I never could figure out the reason we did it.

We looked even sillier than these swan look.

Yellow Swallowtail

This appears to be an Eastern Tiger Swallowtail; however, it doesn’t have stripes like the ones I’ve seen in books.

If you are a butterfly expert, let me know.

Is this a different type of butterfly or just an odd member of the Eastern Tiger Swallowtail family?

Rock Climber

When you think of those who would make good rock climbers, you probably think of mountain goats or people.

It had never occurred to me that my camera might spot an elephant trying to be a rock climber.

Relax with a Sponge

Why is it relaxing to look at an underwater scene with fish and sponges?

I’ve only been able to observe this through a sheet of glass.

I wonder how amazing it would be to take my camera underwater to get the full experience.

Have you explored underwater habitats?

Confused

Sometimes we get confused by what others do.

In this case, a young female gorilla was fascinated with the nesting materials that a mother gorilla was using.

She snatched a piece of the material for herself but was confused about the best way to use it.

Giraffe Cat

This is an African Serval.

Its nickname is Giraffe Cat because their neck and legs are extra-long.

Their ears are also disproportionately large.

If people had ears in the same proportion, they would be as big dinner plates.

No thank you. I like mine the size they are. How about you?

This Serval appears to be complaining about something.

Perhaps people are making fun of its oddly-sized body parts.

I Can Already Taste It

When you are hungry and you see or smell something to eat,

your sense of taste may convince you that you can already taste it.

That seems to be happening here.

Tree Sculpture

Have you ever looked up at the clouds and seen shapes?

For me, nature is a form of art.

As with other forms of art, we see different things when we look at them.

To me, this tree looks like an elephant.

My Aunt Pam sees a buzzard.

What do you see when you look at this tree?
