    Lenticular Clouds​


    Lenticular clouds, technically known as altocumulus standing lenticularis, are stationary lens-shaped clouds that form at high altitudes, normally aligned at right-angles to the wind direction. Where stable moist air flows over a mountain or a range of mountains, a series of large-scale standing waves may form on the downwind side. Under certain conditions, long strings of lenticular clouds can form, creating a formation known as a wave cloud. Lenticular clouds have been mistaken for UFOs (or “visual cover” for UFOs) because these clouds have a characteristic lens appearance and smooth saucer-like shape.

    I chose this image because it really gives you an idea of just how truly large these creatures are.

    Way up! I can't tell if that's a crane or helicopter. And I've never seen a full circle rainbow. It's awesome.

    This YT channel features some people who, twice a day, do live-streams from the wild of Africa.

    "Jump on the back and join a LIVE African Safari. Twice a day our expert guides invite you to come along and drive through the African bush in search of the Big Five as well as smaller animals.

    Interact with your ranger by asking questions through #safarilive on Twitter or via the chat stream to the right of the feed on YouTube.

    UPDATE: As of Tuesday, 1 August:
    The Sunrise drive runs from 06:00 - 09:00 local time, which means start times of 00:00 EDT, 21:00 PDT, 05:00 in the UK, 06:00 in Central Europe (Summer), and 14:00 Sydney time.
    Our Sunset Safari runs from 15:00 - 18:00 local time, which means start times of 09:00 EDT, 06:00 PDT, 14:00 in the UK, 15:00 in Central Europe (Summer), and 23:00 Sydney time.

    When safariLIVE isn't live, you can view the feed from the Djuma Waterhole camera, from the heart of Djuma Private Game Reserve in the Sabi Sand/greater Kruger National Park area."

    I don't mind wasps and hornets. As long as you leave them alone, you should be good. They liked to build nests on my home in Texas and I pretty much let them live. But sometimes they would build a nest on the ceiling of my porch right above where I liked to sit and have a smoke. I had to regulate when they did that.

    Bioluminescent Plankton

    One of the most spectacular sights on a night dive in the ocean is to witness the hundreds of tiny star-like bioluminescent phytoplankton scintillating like a starry sky as you move through the dark water. Towards the end of a dive, just shield your underwater flashlight and wave your hands through the water in front of you, and be mesmerized by the tiny glowing specs of plankton.

    Magnificent.
    I would like to stand, where every pic was taken, to see this with my own eyes.
    I'd weep, for sure.

    When I was a kid, we had a phosphate dock close by. Not quite the same(the water glowed green)(was man made)...
    still really fun(been shut down for many moons now).
    We skied, tubed, snorkeled, splashed and laughed.
    It was so cool.
