Time Lapse of Carnivorous Plants and Their Prey Preparing for Battle


A great “launch” today of the Shoalhaven Greens’ council campaign. The ticket is led by astoundingly good ⁦

⁩ Mayor Amanda Findlay and with a real depth of talent in all the candidates. So glad to be here with them today in the beautiful Shoalhaven.

Time Lapse of Carnivorous Plants and Their Prey Preparing for Battle

Jason Kottke   Nov 04, 2021

Backed by a soundtrack from Alexis Dehimithat sounds like it’s from a Christopher Nolan or Denis Villeneuve movie, Thomas Blanchard’s short film provides a glimpse into the tiny, dynamic world of plants and insects: “A butterfly in the process of being born, plants in the process of growing, Carnivorous plants in the process of hunting.”

It’s all very dramatic, but never fear, a tender disclaimer in the video’s description: “All insects captured by the plants have been released.” (via colossal)

This young Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata) stole the iPhone of a tourist that wanted to take a closeup shot. Photographed at Jigokudani, Japan. This image was the Public’s Choice winner in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year. My most stolen image on the internet.
Facebook update, Japan. When a tourist got too close to a macaque to get some close-ups with her iPhone, the macaque snatched it from her hands and started playing with it in the hot spring. At some stage, it held it just like a human. This image has gone viral on the internet, and it is my most-stolen image. First Prize winner in the Wildlife Photographer of the Year.
