The lovely Hoya Vine I have growing in my back yard <3 there’s always at least one cluster of buds at some different stage in the blooming process
…is an unusual species of Aliciid sea anemone that occurs in the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico. Like many sea anemones L. danae typically inhabits reef environments at depths ranging from 2-60 m. Unlike other sea anemones L. danae's tentacles are hidden by a ring of six branching pseudotentacles around the oral disc. When L. danae comes in contact with a prey item to pseudotentacles will retract and the true tentacles (which are armed with nematoctsts) will take the prey and move it towards the mouth.

Magical pond that changes color with the weather
Kent Shiraishi took these photos of the Blue Pond, a beautiful body of water in Hokkaido, Japan. Blue Pond receives so much attention because of its shimmering blue hue, which changes into a lovely green in certain light. This pond owes its colors to aluminium hydroxide, a mineral which reflects blue light.
