So we climbed the Skiddaw fell the other day, and it was a great reminder of how small and unimportant we human beings are. Let's be a little bit more grateful for what we have! 🌎 #gratitude #goandgrow

A whale shark with some passengers.
Whale sharks are not only the largest sharks but the largest fishes in our oceans. The largest on record, caught off Pakistan in 1947, had a length over 12,5 meters and weighted 25,400 kg. That’s 4 times larger than a large male elephant!
Whale sharks are gentle giants feeding of plankton and small fishes that they filter out of the sea while swimming with their mouth wide open.
Whale sharks can live up to 70 years and can be found in areas with warm water.

Lucky Seven!
Reason #7 for an #Icelandtrip in September:
Combine the spectacular geothermal activity bubbling up at sites all over the island with crisp late summer air and the resulting steamy landscape is surreal and more than camera 📷 ready.

Summer slips away. One lone male Red Winged Blackbird redundantly calls from the pond's edge. All of the females, juveniles and other males have disappeared. Is it the smoke? One female rustles out of cattails, in panic, as Max and I walk past the chain link fence.#seed #goingtoseed #drought #fires #habitat #pondstudy #walking #circlethepond #ecosystems #fires #smoke

Inspired@by @biomimicry38 I’ve been sitting with lots of questions that centre on ‘what would nature do?’
Nature would approach business as an ecosystem I think. Inputs and outputs flowing seamlessly through the whole system. Drawing from permaculture learning I think each element in the business would serve multiple functions, and each need would be fulfilled by more than one input. Nature always has a plan b and c, and maybe even plan d when all else has been exhausted. And nature rests. Not everything in the ecosystem rests at the same time, best everything needs to rest. I’m taking these thoughts and ruminating in how I can apply them to my business. How about you - how do you think nature would build a business?

A group of sharks in Polynesia.
Humans are purposefully killing 100,000 sharks every year while sharks mistakenly kill 15 humans per year. Our fear of those elegant predators is mainly based on the negative image Hollywood movies projected on them. Sharks are crucial to sustain the balance in our oceans. Please spread the word about sharks to change their negative image and enable their survival.

Πεύκο που έχει καεί στο μισό του τμήμα στις καταστροφικές πυρκαγιές τη Δευτέρα 23 Ιουλίου 2018.
Το πεύκο αυτό, όπως τα ζώα και οι άνθρωποι που επιβίωσαν της φυσικής καταστροφής, καθώς και όσοι έχασαν δικούς τους ανθρώπους στις πυρκαγιές θα ζήσουν με τις πληγές, τα τραύματα και τις απώλειες τους. Και υπάρχουν απώλειες που δεν ξεπερνιόνται ποτέ...

Another species is typical of coastal sandy dunes: the Morning glory Calystegia soldanella.
.
Despite that, honestly, insignificant appearence outside flowering season, this plant is very important for coastal vegetation.
.
In fact, it grows very close to the sea and it has very long roots: features that make it able to consolidate sand transported by currents, creating new dunes and new habitats for other species

The movie “Jaws” and other Hollywood blockbusters gave sharks an image of aggressive killer machines. However, sharks are a lot more peaceful than their reputation and definitely not attacking everyone crossing their way. Over the past years, thousands of sharks were killed out of fear of attack’s, for their fins or as by-catch in fishing nets which brought them on the endangered species list. We need to learn to see sharks as what they are. As valuable creatures in our oceans that play an important role in the ecosystem by maintaining the species below them in the food chain and serving as an indicator for ocean health. Sharks help remove the weak and the sick as well as keeping the balance with competitors helping to ensure species diversity.
Are you still seeing sharks in the same way? Let me know your thoughts.

#Biology nerd alert! 🚨🕷 •
The common Yellow Garden Spider (#ArgiopeAurantia) is a versatile spider species belonging to the genus ‘Argiope’. They inhabit a large #geographical area in the Western Hemisphere that encompasses the Americas (#Canada to #Chile) and the island chain of #Hawaii. •

Yellow garden spiders build webs in areas sheltered from wind that secure full sunlight, and feast on several other native insects—making them quite the #generalistspecies with respect to diet and habitat. •
Adult females can grow to a whopping diameter of roughly one inch, and are generally larger than males. Colouration of female species is also more #vivacious—boasting the incredible symmetrical yellow patterning with solid black undertone, as seen in this photo—than those of male adults, who are more of a pale-brown colour in comparison to the opposite sex. •

Courting happens twice a year, when the males roam in search for females. Shortly after mating, the male dies and is sometimes consumed by the female #gardenspider. She lays her egg sac (containing roughly 700-1,000 eggs) in the early fall—usually on the face of the sheltered web—where it will spend all winter without supervision before hatching in the following spring. •

The webbing erected by this species is also quite unique. As orb weavers, yellow garden spiders lace their webs with sticky silk in spiral formation, radiating from the centre of the web. #Unique to this species of garden spiders, the web boasts an impressive symmetrical “zig-zag” #stabilimentum (central web design) that allows for better adherence and immobilization of prey. This feature on the web is consumed every night by the spider and is reconstructed daily. How #interesting is that?! •

#additionalfact: a female Yellow Garden Spider is capable of consuming #prey over 200 X her own body size!

PS: don’t worry, they’re harmless 😊

#throwback to Shanghai, China. 🌸💚 Shanghai was so beautiful to me because it was so green! There were lush, low-hanging leafy trees all throughout the centre of the city, beautifully styled florists and people selling flowers all over the place! It was one of the #1 reasons I fell in love with this city 😍💜 I miss it so much! .

Botanical Architecture diagram
🌳
“Regenerative design is a process-oriented systems theory based approach to design. The term ‘regenerative’ describes processes that restore, renew or revitalize their own sources of energy and materials, creating sustainable systems that integrate the needs of society with the integrity of nature. The basis is derived from systems ecology with a closed loop input–output model or a model in which the output is greater than or equal to the input with all outputs viable and all inputs accounted for. Regenerative design is the biomimicry of ecosystems that provide for all human systems to function as a closed viable ecological economics system for all industry. It parallels ecosystems in that organic (biotic) and synthetic (abiotic) material is not just metabolized but metamorphosed into new viable materials. Ecosystems and regeneratively designed systems are holistic frameworks that seek to create systems that are absolutely waste free. The model is meant to be applied to many different aspects of human habitation such as urban environments, buildings, economics, industry and social systems. Simply put, it is the design of ecosystems and human behavior, or culture that function as human habitats”

I took this today and it really struck me. Growing plants that attract and motivate bees to pollinate is more important now than ever before. Bees are one of the most crucial links in the ecosystem and we need to fight to keep them alive. Aside from that, bees are damn cute.

Many TLC projects focus on terrestrial systems but the distinction between terrestrial and aquatic systems is not as distinct as it may appear. Actions on land directly impact underwater life and vice versa. There are no hard borders in #nature.
