Here is a shot of a little Christmas farm my mom has had ever since I can remember. This has always been my favorite Christmas decoration. As a kid there was something about the lighting in this piece that captured my imagination. I used to spend hours staring at it imaging being in each of the little buildings and traipsing through the snow.
Shot this tag through a small hole in a wall around a construction site. It always amazed me how the city was constantly undergoing deconstruction and recreation.... never the same.... always changing.
Did you know that millipedes have stink glands (called ozopores) from which they emit a foul-smelling and awful tasting compound to repel predators. Also millipedes aren't your average arthropods. They're surprisingly long-lived. Average lifespan is 7 years. Millipedes follow the motto "slow and steady wins the race." They aren't flashy or fast, and they live rather boring lives as decomposers. Their passive defense strategy, camouflage, serves them well, as they outlast many of their invertebrate cousins.
