Giraffe Close-up

I love to see animals close-up. This is a giraffe’s face and head. I think his spots are ever so nice. This was taken at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove BC.

Bear Head

Bear Head

This is a close-up of a polar bear head. I love the way his eyes are barely open and his tongue is just visible. “The polar bear (Ursus maritimus) is a hypercarnivorous bear whose native range lies largely within the Arctic Circle, encompassing the Arctic Ocean, its surrounding seas and surrounding land masses.” Wikipedia.

ET Face in Tree

I like to look at things and possibly see things that might be special.  This is a photo of a tree with moss on it.  The part that is interesting to me is that there seems to be a face, an ET face, protruding from the tree.  I see the forehead, eyes, nose, mouth and throat.  Can you see it?

Solo Bald Eagle

This is one of the best photos I have of a solo Bald Eagle.  The background was just perfect.  I also like the way the plumage is gently flying in the air.  Its beak is perfect for what he needs to do.  The eye is piercing.  Love this photo and the detail.

Did you know that both sexes of bald eagles have the same colouring for plumage?  The difference is that the female is actually a bit larger.  Eagles have excellent eyesight.  “They have two foveae or centers of focus, that allow the birds to see both forward and to the side at the same time.”

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.
