 In a recent expedition to the Antarctic, scientists discovered a whole bunch of strange, new creature- some incredibly ugly, as shown below, and others quite beautiful, as shown below:

Here is a video link (video include giant sea spiders!):  http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/02/080219-spider-video-ap.html

Sandstorm [Apr. 4th, 2008|02:08 pm]



I remember when I lived in Egypt we had a big sandstorm called the Hamsa, but nothing like this, I'd be scared if I saw this big wall o'dirt coming at me.

Tumbleweed of the beach and the olive of the sea [Apr. 4th, 2008|07:58 pm]



Meet Posidonia oceanica, a true marine flowering plant. It is endemic to the Mediterranean Sea and is an important part of near shore ecosystems there. Our European LJ friends may recognize the little ball of dead leaves in the photos as a common scene on the Mediterranean beaches. Wave action rolls the dead sea grass (not really a grass, of course) leaves and other detritus into these forms that litter the beaches. Reminds me of a tribble.

More photos and info...Collapse )
