Meet the caracal. Wondering why it has tassels on its ears? Some scientists think that the cat twitches them to communicate with others (in addition to meowing, purring, hissing, and other feline vocalizations). The caracal has a wide range, from Africa to parts of Asia, sticking to arid habitats like the savannah, semi-desert, and steppe. This graceful animal is the fastest cat of its size, running up to 50 miles per hour, and can jump as high as 3 meters (10 feet)! In fact, this hunter has a reputation for jumping up to swat birds out of the air for a meal. Other prey include small mammals like hyraxes and hares. Photo: Leo za1

Humpback whales engaged in cooperative bubble-net feeding. Multiple large animals with big mouths working together to herd and capture small prey = intelligence, planning, cooperation, communication, social interplay. Amazing to behold. #humpbackwhale #humpbackwhales #bubblenetfeeding #bubblenetting #alaska #megapteranovaeangliae #naturalhistory #nature #photonaturalist #wildlife #naturephotography #nikon #ザトウクジラ #クジラ #light_nikon #ニコン

Hiking upstream. I took our brand new CM Nature Study Group on our first hike today aaaaaand... it was too hard. Whoops. Lesson learned. Lots of lessons learned. (Take group photo first! Set departure time! Threaten older boys with dire warnings if they run ahead to far! Buddy system! Send one mom ahead! Bring Benadryl!) but then we hanged around in the canyon and played for hours and hours and hours and somehow that fixed everything. It always does.

Abstract nature! A recent photo I took on my travels through Scotland. While there I was taken by the beauty of nature and the deep connection to my Celtic heritage ❤

I had a dream, which was not all a dream. The bright sun was extinguish'd, and the stars Did wander darkling in the eternal space, Rayless, and pathless, and the icy earth Swung blind and blackening in the moonless air; Morn came and went—and came, and brought no day, And men forgot their passions in the dread Of this their desolation; and all hearts Were chill'd into a selfish prayer for light - a selection from “Darkness” by Lord Byron - Untitled 32 in the Veneration of Light Collection - Swipe for image details #stilllife #curiosities #macabre #vanitas #skull #artlovers #naturalhistory #victoriangothic #deathpositive #mementomori #flora #fauna #bones #taxidermyart #artistsoninstagram #witchesofinstagram #deathpostiveart #morbid #contemporaryart #wunderkammer #series #remnants #art #collection #darkartandcraft #taxidermy #oddities #beautifulbizarre #odditiesandcuriosities

Repost from @smithsonian3d - "Pictured are macro sections of corallite structures captured by a structured light scanner. The conglomerate of colors represents each individual scan of the coral’s complex geometry, rather than its actual coloration. For this project, we performed twenty scans per rotation, at several different angles, to produce a high-resolution surface model of roughly 3 square inches on the surface of various corals. #intricate . This is part of an ongoing project with Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History and @thehydrous meant to use 3d models and interactive online experiences to engage the public in reef health and the Smithsonian’s vast collection of type coral specimens."

This reminds me of someone who looks at people's Instagram page but never post, follow or like! 😂😂 #dontbeastranger. The Natural History Museum is my most visited museum in London. It's hard to find an orginal shot in here though! _________________________________ : : #london #uk #museum #zoology #naturalhistory #whales #animals #monkey #photography #memes #funny #humour #jokes #instagood #travelgram #travel #ig_travel #blog #ideas #sculpture #explore

Greetings Folks! Doing a little throwback Thursday of the time I went to the Los Angeles National History Museum. Visiting museums, particularly of the science and history variety, is one of my favorite things to do while traveling (I am a nerd after all). The National History Museum in LA is one of the best I’ve been to. Some noteworthy parts of the museum were the dinosaur exhibits/fossils, the stuffed animal halls, and the live animal exhibits (not pictured). The price is very reasonable ($15 for adults) and you get a lot of value for your money. For a little more money you get access to the Butterfly and Spider Pavilions; but unfortunately these were closed at the time I went, so I do not have an opinion of those exhibits. Highly recommend checking out this museum if you’re in Los Angeles. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #throwback #throwbackthursday #naturalhistory #naturalhistorymuseum #losangeles #museum #museums #park #history #science #moose #rhino #dinosaur #dinosaurs #fossils #travel #traveler #travelers #travelling #travelphotography #travelpics #vacation #vacationmode #vacay #explore #tourism #tourist #wander #wanderlust #park

I love the purple gloss of these manucodes, a family of birds of paradise. I have seen a couple of species in the jungles of papua. I like these illustrations, although many consider this book on birds of paradise by Tom Iredale as one of the worst books on the subject... #manucode #birdofparadise #birdsofparadise #bird #birdsofinstagram #birds #ornithology #papua #png #papuabarat #indonesia #asia #jungle #naturalhistory #birdbook #oldbook #illustration #iredale

So I caught a possum for my 7th grade Natural History class. It showed up in my driveway and has been feasting on dog food for a few days. After a harrowing time in front of a few 7th graders, it’s back off to the woods tonight! Today was a good day for middle schoolers. . . . #possum #opossum #marsupial #naturalhistory #scienceteacher

The thing with cats , at least for me is, you think they look great when you leave the studio after 5 cups of coffee and hours under fluorescent light, only to return the next day and go..🤔...hhmmhh, something doesn’t look right. More tweaking tomorrow. #taxidermy #taxidermist #serval #wildcat #leopard #mammaltaxidermy #bigcats #zooanimals #naturalhistory #cabinetofcuriosities

THE MEDIUM The medium takes your hand in hers and you become aware of a scent as delicate as her touch. In the air, the sweetness of peach and milky coconut combine with an aromatic blend of dried flowers. Open this vial, and you too may feel this sense of comfort. Indeed, what we might think is lost may simply be on another plane. Featured notes: white florals, milky coconut, peach, antiqued leather

Drop in tomorrow between 11am-3pm for science, crafts, and fun with Cody Outdoor Classroom in the field by Shannon Pond! This STEM-focused organization has natural phenomenon and geologic wonders to teach to all ages and demonstrations for you to jump right into. They joined us for our Family Fun Day last weekend and had a blast with water carving demos and spreading the fascinating geology of the NH lakes region! #castlemoments #castleinthecloudsnh #citcnh #codyoutdoorclassroom #funinthefield #nhgeology #naturalwondersofnh #naturalhistory #lakesregionnh #visitnh

Look at the size of that…is it a croc? Or a gator? Compare American Alligator vs. American Crocodile heads & note the different in sizes & shape! 🐊 In case you didn't know, the Alligator head is on the left! Take a closer look if you dare! . . . Found in @Biodivlibrary collections. "Heads of American Alligator and American Crocodile", in "The Alligator and its Allies". Authored by Albert Moore Reese (1872-).
