Sea Going

Mikawoz Sea Going

It is an overcast day in the Vancouver Harbour where freighters line up and a fishing boat is being followed by many seagulls and sea birds looking for their next feed. According to Wikipedia, “Informally known as “box boats,” they carry the majority of the world’s dry cargo. Most container ships are propelled by diesel engines, and have crews of between 10 and 30 people.”

It is a tranquil picture although there is much going on in it.

Reposing Tiger

This tiger is reposing – enjoying his time in his loft at the zoo. I believe he is an Amur tiger from the Russian Far East. He looks deep in thought. The picture is nicely framed by some trees.

Here is a close-up of a sleeping cheetah. Isn’t he marvellous? He looks so serene and peaceful. Doesn’t he remind you of a domestic cat the way he sleeps?

Pacific Jellyfish

This is a photo of Pacific Sea Nettle Jellyfish.  They have been roaming the seas for anywhere from 500 to 700 million years.  They move elegantly with their gelatinous umbrella-shaped bell bodies and flowing tentacles.  They dance as if to music and I was quite mesmerized by them.  They range in size from 1 millimeter to 2 meters in size for their bodies.  Their nerve net system is in their epidermis.  Some jellyfish are light-sensitive through something called ocelli while some jellyfish have up to 24 eyes, 2 of which can see colour.  As you can see, there is quite a range.  They also have a life-cycle going from polyps to the medusa stage.
