The Jaguar is the third largest feline (after the tiger and the lion) and the largest in the Western Hemisphere.  Boasting of the strongest bite of all felids (2,000lbf), the jaguar employs an unusual killing method; mainly it bites directly through the skull of its prey between the ears to deliver a fatal bite to the brain. The Jaguar is also the second strongest of all mammals (after the spotted hyena) enabling it to tackle and drag 800 lb bulls and vicious reptiles such as this Yacare caiman.

You don't just have to do push-ups in the gym, you can do them anywhere!  Do push-ups with your hands far apart to workout more of your lower chest.  Do push-ups with your hands closer together to work out your upper chest and triceps more.  If you want to improve your power, you can do plyometric push-ups like the clapping ones.  There are SO many different kinds of push-ups you can do and you can do them anywhere, making the push-up an awesome exercise!

Shining South

Trying new things with photography is a lot of fun so for this image of the milky way I added spikes to a star with post production. This image was captured in Whitney, Ontario, Canada while enjoying a night under the stars. This past week I have been looking for some new areas to photograph both during the day and night so I hope tonight is clear so I can head up north to observe and photography more of the milky way. :D Thanks for viewing and feel free to share. If you would like to see more night skies, wildlife and landscapes from Ontario, Canada feel free to add me to your circles.

Please do not download, copy or manipulate this image or any of my images without the written permission of Wesley Liikane. Thanks

The Apollo 11 astronauts had an unique chance to view the Earth from a completely different perspective, most specifically, Earthrise from lunar orbit. This perspective creates a newfound appreciation for our pale blue dot, as philosopher David Loy describes:

“To have that experience of awe is to, at least for the moment, let go of yourself, to transcend the sense of separation. So it’s not just that they were experiencing something other than them, but that they were, at some very deep level, integrating and realizing their interconnectedness with that beautiful blue-green ball.”

To the observer, borders seem to disappear as countries flow seamlessly into one another. Like a singular organism, Earth becomes something more than a map of divisions based upon ideology and geography.  Those who share this vantage point see Earth as one ecosystem, with all parts artfully woven together to create a perfect home for millions of plant and animal species. Conflicts between nations become less apparent, and the need for a united planetary society to protect our beautiful home becomes increasingly obvious and imperative.

This realization of the interconnectedness of all life on Earth and the need to protect it, dubbed the Overview Effect, has been reported among astronauts from the Apollo program all the way through to the current International Space Station astronauts.

Astronauts are counted among the few who get to observe the Earth from the outside with the naked eye. For those of us on the surface, NASA continues to release stunning images and video from their Earth-orbiting spacecraft. Let’s keep their funding coming, so that all of humanity has the chance to learn about the importance of our beautiful home in space!

Aurora Borealis Over Russia & Finland | International Space Station
This nighttime view featuring the aurora borealis, the moon and Moscow was photographed by an Expedition 39 crew member on the International Space Station. A thin green line of the aurora borealis crosses the top of this image. The moon appears as a white disc just above the aurora. Airglow appears as a blue-white cusp on Earth's limb.

Russia's capital city Moscow makes a splash of yellow (lower left), with its easily recognized radial pattern of highways. Other cities are Nizhni Novgorod (lower center) 400 kilometers from Moscow, St. Petersburg (left) 625 kilometers from Moscow, and Finland's capital city Helsinki.

Research from +UC Santa Cruz explains the moon's non-spherical shape.
Most of the moon's overall shape can be explained by taking into account tidal effects acting early in the moon's history.

Infographic Space Weather
Space weather refers to the variable conditions on the Sun and in the space environment that can influence the performance and reliability of space-based and ground-based technological systems, as well as endanger life or health. Just like weather on Earth, space weather has its seasons, with solar activity rising and falling over an approximate 11 year cycle.

Frozen in Flight

The technical challenge for Photographers!

To capture a hummingbird in flight, with little or no wing blur.  Personally, I like a bit of blur.  To me it just looks more natural.  I do not like flash for birds for this very reason., they simply look fake.

When we are watching these birds buss around the flowers, our eyes and brains cannot be fast enough to freeze the wings, so a bit of blur is more natural.

Once in a while, when I get lucky, the wings are caught in an almost still position, with a bit of blur.. as this image has those properties.

Thanks for looking, I hope you will join me in Costa Rica some day!
