What am I? Part 2

This is the answer to the "What Am I?" post right before this one:


Here's the article: http://www.newscientist.com/article/dn14045-gallery-trees-as-youve-never-seen-them-before.html - "A new exhibition by artist Rob Kesseler, Canopy, presents vividly coloured electron microscope images of fruits, pollen, leaves, wood and seeds. The exhibition is at Kew Gardens, London, until September." 

THe "eye pod" (snort) photo is actually that of a pollen grain of a horse chestnut! If you visit the ilnk above, there are eight neat shots of various microscopic tree-related images.

Zombie Bambi: part 1 of 2

Dawn of the Deer, or My Own Private Body Farm…


This is an accounting of a deer-related incident that began in March and ends in May… As long as I can remember, we’ve had deer roaming through our yard, snacking on the yew bushes (sides, but not tops, alas) and leaving ‘deer berries’ on the lawn. We’ve never seen one killed, though, in our yard.


The following contains graphic content (no joke) with pictures and videos. Small children and sensitive folk should avoid. So if you’re looking for cute Bambi shots, nope, this is the wrong LJ entry to look at. Move along, move along…
