This amber embedding the fossil of a spider just when it was attacking its prey is about 100 million years old. Cool fossil, but poor spider (the prey was doomed anyway)!
 
Spider fossilized in amber just wants to finish its dinner...

Bees in France produce blue honey, thanks to M&Ms.
 
Bees producing blue honey in France.

Beekeepers in France have been alarmed to find their bees producing honey in unnatural shades of green and blue.

The beekeepers believe the source of the problem is a biogas plant in Alsace.

It is thought the bees have been eating the sugary waste from M&Ms.

The plant operator said it regretted the situation and had put in place a procedure to stop it happening again.

The company, which deals with waste from a Mars chocolate factory, said it would clean out the containers, store all incoming waste in airtight containers and process it promptly, according to a company statement published in Le Monde newspaper.

Bee numbers have seen a rapid decline globally in recent years.

As for the blue honey, the beekeepers say it is unsellable.

What do you think ?

Stephen Wiltshire, autistic artist, draws panoramas of cities with fascinating detail. He did this one in particular of New York City from memory after a mere 20 min helicopter ride. Amazing!

‎"The Valley of the Giants" - It has now been 6 months since I left Norway and started this journey. It has been an incredible experience so far and I have meet some really amazing people and seen some beautiful locations. I can not wait to see what the next 12 months will bring. For the last few weeks I have had the pleasure to drive across western Australia. Here is a shot from yesterday, taken in the southwest part of Australia.
