Here is a second entry for this weeks travel theme “arches.”
Here is my entry for the weekly photo challenge “minimalist.” Archaefructus is an extinct genus of herbaceous aquatic seed plants with 3 known species. Fossil material assigned to this genus originates from the Yixian Formation in northeastern China, originally dated as late Jurassic but now thought to be approximately 125 million years old, or early Cretaceous in age. Even with its revised age, Archaefructus has been proposed to be one of the earliest known genera of flowering plants. This is a photo of the Archaefructus Liaoningensis fossil at the Chaoyang Paleontological Museum in northeast China.
Here is a second entry for this weeks photo challenge “descent.” This Red Panda understands how to descend from his wood structure. However, the baby panda not so much. He couldn’t decide if he wanted to ascend or descend the ladder.
Here is my entry for this weeks photo challenge “refraction.” Rainbows are an optical and meteorological phenomenon that is caused by both reflection and refraction of light in water droplets resulting in a spectrum of light appearing in the sky.
