I really like this shot; I don’t usually feature pictures of people, but I love the gentle movement and the colours of this shot.

Camel riding in Dubai, originally uploaded by B℮n.

Camel!

Thanks to the San Diego Zoo for today’s Fun Fact about camels:
“Do camels really spit? They aren’t actually spitting—it’s more like throwing up! They bring up the contents of their stomachs, along with saliva, and project it out. This is meant to surprise, distract, or bother whatever the camel feels is threatening it. ”

I did not know that. Interesting! (And, um, ew.)

Squid and the Construction Worker, originally uploaded by Trevor Haldenby.

The original photographer calls this “Squid and the Construction Worker” – it was taken during construction on the Schad Gallery of Biodiversity at the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto.

It was featured on Torontoist, and I just had to give it another audience.

Goldfish spiral, originally uploaded by Nathan deGargoyle.

Spiraling goldfish made using the Droste effect – a specific kind of recursive picture that shows a smaller version of itself in a place where a similar picture would realistically be expected to appear. In theory could this go on forever; practically, it continues only as long as the resolution of the picture allows. (Says Wikipedia.)

Check out more of this type of work in this Flickr pool.

Magnolia flowers., originally uploaded by wazka(maya)dragonfly.

We’re expecting 10-15 cm of snow in Toronto today, but that doesn’t mean I can be looking towards spring – these gorgous magnolia flowers help.
