Today’s Wallpaper: Swimming With The Sea Cows

Swimming With The Sea Cows

In observance of Manatee Awareness Month, we’re swimming through a clear Florida river with these friendly ‘sea cows.’ Generally solitary animals, they are also known to be curious and will approach boats. That’s why Florida enforces special speed zones for watercraft, particularly as the manatees are on the move to warmer areas to spend the winter. While manatees have no known natural predators, they remain a vulnerable species due to loss of habitat and collisions with boats… Read More @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Bison at Yellowstone National Park

Bison at Yellowstone National Park

A national icon

If ever there was an animal that deserved some recognition, it’s the bison. Since 2012, National Bison Day has been observed on the first Saturday of November to acknowledge the animal’s cultural, historical, and economic significance—as well as its remarkable comeback. Bison were once plentiful in America. Tens of millions strong in the 1800s, they roamed in great herds, helping to diversify and maintain the prairie habitat… Continue Reading @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Prague’s Charles Bridge

Prague’s Charles Bridge

Superstition abounds on Prague’s Charles Bridge, dating back to its construction in 1357. Builders laid the original bridge stone on July 9 at exactly 5:31 AM, the year, date, and time represented by a precise set of numbers that formed a palindrome: 135797531 (or 1357 9, 7 5:31). The sequence, which reads the same backward and forward, is carved onto the stones of the Old Town Bridge Tower at the east end of the bridge and was believed to bring a kind of magical strength to the structure… Read More @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Straw Colored Fruit Bats

Straw Colored Fruit Bats

There are over 1,000 species of bats, but they all fit neatly into one of two categories: microbats or megabats. The straw-colored fruit bat, if you didn’t guess, is of the mega variety. They are the most widely distributed of all African fruit bats and have adapted to a variety of habitats. Because their habitat extends to such great distances, straw-colored fruit bats play a critical role as pollinators and dispersers of seeds. They’re highly social, too, living in large groups called colonies that can number from the thousands upward to a million. But don’t worry, they do not drink blood. For them, fruit is life… — Read More @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Fort Rock Valley Historical Homestead Museum

Fort Rock Valley
Historical Homestead Museum

The spooky scene here might look like a place you’d want to avoid, but it’s not likely to scare you—not too much anyway. It’s the Fort Rock Valley Historical Homestead Museum in central Oregon, a collection of abandoned homestead-era buildings from the area. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, people acquired federal lands around here for farms and ranches via the Homestead Acts. But most left within a few years due to the hot, dry summers and extremely cold winters. Today, the buildings are assembled as a ghost town and contain items from that period, including furniture, dishes, and tools. There’s also a nearby cemetery which, according to local lore, is haunted by the ghost of a rancher and author Reub Long riding his horse. — Read More @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Bridge of Hillsborough County

Bridge of Hillsborough County

The Hancock-Greenfield Bridge (aka County Bridge) has offered a picturesque passage over the Contoocook River in southern New Hampshire since 1937. It was built to replace another covered bridge that had been destroyed in a flood. But why even build a covered bridge? In a word, longevity. The roof and walls help protect the timber supports from rot. For comparison, an uncovered wooden bridge lasts an average of 20 years, while the covered variety can reach 100 years or more. — Read More @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Polar Bear Family

Polar Bear Family

Welcome to Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, the self-proclaimed Polar Bear Capital of the World. Each year, about a thousand polar bears pass through the small town, outnumbering human residents. In October, the bears gather here to wait for the Hudson Bay to freeze over so they can venture out onto the ice to hunt for seals. The annual gathering of polar bears here is a big event for the residents of Churchill. They maintain a hotline for bear sightings and even run a polar bear ‘jail’ that temporarily holds ‘pesky’ bears to keep locals (and their food) safe. — Continue Reading @ Bing

Today’s Wallpaper: Bobbing for Crab Apples

Bobbing for Crab Apples

If it’s autumn, it’s apple season—the time for apple pie, apple cider (and, of course, apple cider doughnuts), apple cake, caramel apples, or just biting into a fresh, crisp apple, especially one you picked yourself. There are more than 7,500 varieties of apples grown in the world—about 2,500 in the US. This blackbird is enjoying a crab apple, which most people find a little sour to eat right off the tree. They do, however, work well for jelly, apple butter, or even pie filling. The term ‘crab apple’ doesn’t refer to a specific species but is used for several types of small apples. In Celtic culture, crab apples are associated with love and marriage. Supposedly if you throw the seeds into a fire while saying the name of your love, the seeds explode if your love is true. We’d try it but we’re busy baking a pie. — Read More @ Bing
