What things in nature amaze you?
#1
Spiders being able to weave webs amazes me. Their brains are so small yet they have the insticts to weave a web with no training. And every web is different because the surroundings are different.

Also...have you seen the honey bee waggle dance? Bees use the waggle dance to tell others in the hive where they can find the best sources of pollen and nectar.

The beauty (and sound) of the ocean.

The fact that I really believe, because they act like it, that my dogs really love me. That they are my children.

Sorry, that's it for today. I was just thinking of this because we have a view of the ocean and 4 dogs that I love dearly so those are daily reminders that there is more to life than money, websites, TV, etc.

Orcas will kill great white sharks and consider them sushi and seem to only eat their livers...looks like Jaws is going to need a bigger boat.

Termite engineer their mounds in Africa so they are always around 72F inside no matter the temp outside. They have series of airways they open and close to control the temp. Architects are trying to utilize the same tech.

I haven't taken the time in 3 or 4 years but I used to float a stretch on Sugar Creek at least once a year. Indians gave it the name because of the abundant Sugar Maples that grow along the banks.

I started in the mid-70s when I built a canoe. Back then I always made the trip over the 4th of July weekend and paddled only around 8 miles or so.

After I retired I gave the canoe to my son and bought a touring kayak. Then I started floating a 30-mile distance over a 5-day period, pitching a tent on sandbars each night.

Over the years I saw some amazing beauty in nature.

A bald eagle sitting on the top of a dead tree and watching me as I floated by. A beaver rolling itself in the shallow water near the bank. Muskrat swimming to and from their dens to forage for food. A doe with two fauns getting a morning drink and watching me as I floated toward them. When she decided I was too close she left the water for the woods and called back to the fawns to follow her.

Every time I float that creek I see something new. Those are the most peaceful times I've known in my life.

Here's a brown bear chasing a deer. Sure the deer gets stuck at the end but the beer is running stride for stide with the deer the entire time and looks like it's just jogging. For an animal that big to be that fast and agile is amazing.

I once read that a grizzly can run up to 30 MPH.

Quote:These are pictures of a village in Assam (India). A man bought the cow from a neighboring village and brought it to his village. Dogs used to bark at night. People thought that thieves were taking advantage of the lockdown. They installed CCTV and what they saw surprised them. Then they reached the village of the man from whom they had bought the cow and found out that the mother of the leopard had died when she was 20 days old. The people of the village brought the female leopard to the cow and she nursed it. When the kitten grew up, they left him in the forest, but he did not forget his savior, who fed him. She comes to the forest every night to visit her mother.

When I was a youngster in New Jersey my Dad worked on communication equipment for the boats part-time in a marina. In summer I went fishing about every day off the piers.

One day I heard mewing and looked in a hole in the side of the pier I was on to find a couple of newborn kittens. I managed to catch one of them and took it home.

We placed the kitten with my rat terrier who had a fresh litter at the time. She nursed that kitten right along with her pups.
