“She’s a full on Monet. It’s like a painting, see? From far away, it’s okay, but up close, it’s a big old mess.” -Cher (Clueless, 1995) • Sorry Cher, but impressionism is actually prettier close up • • • #themet#metropolitan
Aquarius remigis, the common water strider. They are predatory and not infrequently cannibalistic as well. Bizarrely, the threat of predation from members of their own species will drive water striders to fly off in search of safer waters, which in turn drives evolution and diversification. So, they colonize new places because they are avoiding being eaten by each other. #entomology#gerridae
Vehicular slaughter. So many nice things, so very broken and left to rot. Please find attached some excellent examples of vehicles left to be nothing more than oxidised metal. . . . . . . . . #heatercentral#fatalframes @fujifilm_global @fujifilmx_uk @_fujilove_ @fujiholics @renegade_abandoned @urbexpeople
It’s such a shame not everyone got to visit the S&R Orchards this year, a consequence of the warmer weather. Still, we were fortunate enough to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom, and they did not disappoint. Loved my time here, and would recommend to anyone whom sadly missed out. Next year will be just as stunning. 🌸🌸🌸 . . . #cherryblossom#cherryblossoms . . .
