Great photo of volcanic flow in Iceland. I always liked how lava streams look like the circulatory system of a human body.

Slime mold (myxomycetes), Arcyria stipata. Northwest Territories, Canada. It is particularly cool in a gross ground beef-looking kind of way.

This is a video we produced some years back. We travelled to northern Thailand to film the first ever attempt at replacing a limb on an injured elephant who had stepped on a landmine in war torn Myanmar. It was, and still is, an incredible story! And watch to the end - very powerful!

Photographer Tobias Baumgaertner captured this image of two widowed fairy penguins looking over the Melbourne skyline. It has won an award in Oceanographic magazine's Ocean Photography Awards. Biologists had been studying the colony for a few years. The lighter penguin is an elderly female whose partner died this year. The darker one is a younger male who lost his partner two years ago.

Many people are surprised to see the size of a Koala's claws. They are serious business. A must need 'tool' for climbing trees.

Have you ever seen bee poo?
Did you know that worker bees can hold their poop for several weeks and then one warm lovely day do a nice cleansing flight. In this case, the bee decided a jacket was as good a place as any. Most bee poop is yellow with a sticky texture. Sometimes it looks like tiny lines of mustard forming a trail behind the bee.
