While werewolves are the stuff of folklore, the light and the gravitational pull of the Moon do have real effects on the behaviour and physiology of a host of earthbound organisms — including, perhaps, people. Moonlight can also change animal behaviour. Many marine organisms move up and down in the sea depending on the level of moonlight in order to keep their light levels constant. On land, some nocturnal animals come out on a well-lit night to hunt , others stay hidden to avoid predators.
These are just stunning….Scenes from Antarctica! Just amazing! CLICK the first picture and it will take you to the LARGE hi resolution images!
Summer is returning to Antarctica and researcher teams from around the world are heading south for the (relatively) warm season. Among them are members of a Russian team that drilled into Lake Vostok last February. Vostok is a subglacial lake some 4,000 meters below the surface of the ice, and the plan is to send a robot down there this summer to collect water samples and sediments from the bottom. Research also continues at the South Pole Telescope, the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, and dozens of other locations around Antarctica. Gathered here are recent images of Antarctica, its environment, and some of the scientific work taking place there. [37 photos]
Nature photography tends to put a stronger emphasis on the aesthetic value of the photo than other photography genres, such as photojournalism and documentary photography.
Apart from this difference, nature photography will always be more surprising than any other type of photography. Nature, with all its resources creates far more beautiful scenery than what a man can create artificially.

Weather plays a major part in the Animal Kingdom, changing daily and reflecting the seasons. You can never predict the weather , because it can start raining at the drop of a hat. However, you can’t let rain ruin your day at Animal Kingdom.

With so much human conflict and suffering, we often underestimate the awesome and destructive power of nature.
