Bald Eagle Gets a Surprise by Arthur Trevino

“When this Bald Eagle missed on its attempt to grab this prairie dog, the prairie dog jumped towards the eagle and startled it long enough to escape to a nearby burrow. A real David vs Goliath story!”

ROFL by Giovanni Querzani

“A young lion in the Serengeti National Park, Tanzania, who apparently is laughing at my photography skills.”

Missed! by Lea Scaddan

“Two Western Grey Kangaroos were fighting and one missed kicking him in the stomach.”

Yay – It’s Friday! by Lucy Beveridge

“A young springbok, all ears and spindly legs, caught in midair while pronking as the sun started to rise over the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. There’s not much information on why the Springbok pronk but some theories suggest it is a way of showing fitness and strength to ward off predators and attract mates. It has also been said that this small, dainty and largely unappreciated antelope also pronks out of excitement, jumping for joy!”

Sweet lips are for kissing by Philipp Stahr

“This picture was taken at Curaçao, Dutch Caribbean. Usually box fishes are difficult to take pictures of, since they do not have a problem of a diver coming close, but if you show interest, they always turn the back and not the face to you. That’s why I tried to swim 0.5m above the fish and showing no interest at all to him. The same time I had my camera not in front of me, but below at my chest pointing to the bottom. When the right moment had come, I turned the camera 90 degrees to the front and just point and shoot, hoping to have the fish in focus. Never expected to have its beautiful lips that close!”

Happy by Tom Svensson

“These penguins was surfing on the waves on to land and looked so happy each time”

Houston – we’ve got a problem! by Txema Garcia Laseca

“This fish is astonished when has been trapped for a fisher bird”

Monday Morning Mood by Andrew Mayes

“I took this shot while photographing a group of Pied starlings perched in a tree at the Rietvlei Nature Reserve in South Africa. It perfectly sums up my mood on most Monday mornings :)”

Quarantine Life by Kevin Biskaborn

“Isolated inside with your family eager to get out and explore the world? These eastern raccoon kits are too. Just when you think there’s no more room in the tree hollow, mother raccoon appears and displays just how compact the space is. The babies clambered all over their mom and each another, struggling to take a look at the exact same time. This photo was taken in Southwestern Ontario, Canada. After exploring a particular area with numerous tree hallows, I identified it as a hot spot for raccoon families. Since raccoons will move from den to den, often not spending more than one night at a time in a particular den, locating an area with numerous options is key to locating the animals. I stumbled across this family and immediately worked on leveling the camera with the hole to prevent an upward angle. When the camera and tripod were ready, the baby raccoons were extremely curious (and cooperative), sticking their heads out for a closer look!”

Yoga Bittern by KT Wong

“A Yellow Bittern was trying very hard to get into a comfortable hunting position. I got this shot when it was between 2 stalks of lotus flower.”

Cranky hippo by Rohin Bakshi

“The baby hippo wanted his mother’s attention, but it seems he wasn’t getting any..”

飼い主が何かを食べてると真似してむにゃむにゃする猫

飼い主が食べているとそれを真似する猫
 飼い主が何かを食べていると、それを真似して一緒に口をむしゃむしゃと動かす猫がいるという。これがエア咀嚼というやつなのか。

 食いしん坊な猫、バーシクは、飼い主の食べ物をねだることがあり、食べられるものだけあげていたところ、飼い主が食べている=自分も食べられるという脳内図式が出来上がり、パブロフの犬のごとく条件反射でこうなってしまったようだ。 続きを読む

人間サイズの巨大な物体を量子状態にし、ほぼ完全に静止させることに成功

巨大な物体を量子状態にして静止させることに成功
 人間の目にはピタッと止まっているように見える物体であっても、じつは止まっていない。原子の動きを観察できるレンズがあったとすれば、静止していると思っていた物体が振動する粒子の集まりであることに気がつくだろう。

 そうやって動き回る物体を超冷却すれば、原子は完全に動きを止める。この純粋な量子状態を「振動基底状態」という。

 これまで重量ナノグラムレベルの数百万の原子の雲ならば、どうにか静止させることができていた。だが今回、米マサチューセッツ工科大学(MIT)の研究グループが実現したのは、原子どころか人間ほどの大きさのある物体をほぼ完全に静止させることだ。 続きを読む
