Tony that Brazilian Grape Tree is beautiful. And yes, plants are an important part of wildlife habitat. Oh that albino Beta fish is so beautiful.

So, many thanks!

I hope everyone is having a relaxing day.

I know this isn't exactly wildlife, but I found it fascinating, and wanted to share. Brazilian Grape Tree (also known as Jabuticaba) does not use branches to grow fruits. It grows fruits (and flowers) directly on the trunk.

Fascinating.

Albino Betta.

Tony I just love the horses and the very cool looking butterfly. It is really awesome that the butterfly is transparent.

Thanks very much.

Hedre are some butterflies I took pictures of a few weeks ago.

Comment by Tony Carroll on January 18, 2013 at 6:25pm

Okay Steph, I'm taking all the butterflies. Just beautiful.

Joan, glad you are enjoying the pictures. The wonder and awe of nature all around me often stop me in my tracks. All I can say then is "Wow".

The Clouded Leopard's Secret..."

"Clouded leopards have the largest canine teeth relative to their body size of all large cats.  I swiped this picture
without permission from Flikr.  The excellent photo was taken by a guy that goes by the handle of Nikographer." 
Tony, I have never heard of such a creature; it has an interesting story as written "in a book for children written by Karen Povey of the Clouded Leopard Project and illustrated by Heather Hudson."
Thanks so much.
