More likely the photographer used a spray bottle (it’s a common technique). In either case, I doubt the dragonfly is alive.
They eat people all the time! Last year, Sarasota County Florida, Chet Willard, age 16, swimming in the Oak River Canal, killed by an 11-footer. Two years ago, Chatham County Georgia, Ruth Baker, age 39, killed in her backyard by a 10-footer. Same year,
They carry a lot of nasty pathogens (leprosy) and I’ve heard mixed reviews on how they taste. I do know however that they are incredibly stupid so if you wanted to catch one and eat it, it wouldn’t be too hard.
You are highly correct of course : ) I see all other people as just me on a different day of the week. Whenever I’m mad at someone I compare their actions to something similar I’ve done myself, and I realize “oh well, that’s
I’ve seen lots of these guys in Colorado. The key to be on the mountain when there aren’t too many people- so early in the morning or on less busy routes. My buddy and I did the West Ridge of Quandary last summer and

He was hungry… end of story. :o) Source. http://greenwellphotography.wordpress.com/2012/11/04/357/
Not too far away. I took this shot on the road towards El Castillo/Arenal National park about a year ago. One of my Tico friends that’s a tour guide found him.
“Russia”… Kurile Lake is as russian as my left nut. Russians need to be removed from siberia and siberia should be returned to the siberians. Exterminate the russians if need be to achieve this good.
I don’t assume evolution is intelligent. The assumption i made is that for a body, producing 16 different types of receptors is more burdensome than producing less of them. The other assumption i made is that the lifespan of the mantis shrimp is a
I had one (veiled) for a year without any problems. Just kept up on the moisture, kept my place fairly warm, used a timer for the lights, fed her a few crickets daily with a powdered supplement on them. She also ate some of
The picture is titled “Orphaned Cheetah Cubs at Mweiga National Park Headquarters”, photographed by Peter Beard in 1968 [Source](http://blog.jumblepusher.com/post/13212589790/peter-beard-orphaned-cheetah-cubs-at-mweiga)
I was thinking earlier today about how beautiful they are. [Bertie](http://trewitleyowltrust.wordpress.com/2014/03/05/fame-for-bertie/) is who I was thinking of specifically.
Love that fireweed! This summer I went to the north, and someone told me you can tell how long summer is going to last based on how far up the fireweed was blooming (the flowers bloom from the bottom to the top and die
It’s weird. I know bright colors mean “I am poison, don’t eat me!” but there’s a part of my brain that thinks that frog looks delicious.
The lodge in Sabi I stayed in guaranteed leopard sightings. I also saw the Bug Five within two days, along with hyenas, a leopard making its kill, and even a pack of wild dogs relaxing in the undergrowth. Kruger is an incredible wildlife reserve.

I think this may be photoshopped… The lighting between the two animals seems a little off, and I’m not sure that pelicans and wild (free ranging??) gold fish live in the same areas. I may be wrong, just seemed a little off to me.
Many smaller animal species are kept in an enclosed space (especially in the US) because the general public does not listen to rules and/or dont respect the animals. This seems to be a cultural thing a lot of the time, but some species at
This picture has been edited and super saturated. I’m still working on finding the original of this specific image, but here is what they actually look like: http://www.californiaherps.com/snakes/images/tstetra2sm042.jpg Still a gorgeous snake!
I need to know everything that went into this because I could consider my life complete if I could take a photo like this. I suspect that, aside from more patience and ahem, talent, that I’d need a pro level camera and lens rather
I uploaded to Imgur for reliability, but please pay a visit to [the photographer’s website.](http://www.georgesteinmetz.com/) He has an impressive portfolio, and the articles about his travels are an interesting read. Edit: For the lazy, George Steinmetz is renowned for his aerial shots taken from

Yeah. That actually looks less useful, due to the unreasonable size. Good luck with being agile enough, while carrying that. Edit: I love how we are having this conversation, while no one else is here haha.
