A Yellow-vented Bulbul (Pycnonotus goiavier) spotted feeding on a nearby tree at the Pandan River, Singapore, on 15 Oct 2019. I've taken shots of these birds in the past but these ones came out quite well, I think.

Und hier kommt ein Urweltmammutbaum. Dieser Baum aus China ist ein 'lebendes Fossil' und wurde erst 1942 in China (wieder)entdeckt. Die Gattung ist fossil seit der Oberkreide (90 Mio. J.) nachgewiesen.

And here comes a Metasequoia glyptostroboides. This tree from China is a 'living fossil' and was only (re)discovered in China in 1942. The genus is fossil since the Upper Cretaceous (90 million years).

Schaut euch diesen Küstenmammutbaum (Redwood) an. Er ist im westlichen Nordamerika zu Hause. Diese Bäume können 1000 bis 1500 Jahre alt werden.
Und wir Menschen denken, wir seien groß(artig).

Look at this coastal redwood (Sequoia sempervirens). It is at home in western North America. These trees can live from 1000 to 1500 years.
And we humans think we are great.

Ganz besonders schön finde ich diese Tränen-Kiefer. Sie wächst in Höhenlagen bis 2500 m von Afghanistan bis Nepal und ist leider durch Raubbau stark gefährdet.

I particularly like this Pinus wallichiana. It grows at altitudes up to 2500 m from Afghanistan to Nepal and is unfortunately highly endangered by overexploitation.

Dies ist die Japanische Zelkove. Sie ist in Ostasien zu Hause, eine verwandte Art gibt es auch auf Kreta. Das starke Kernholz wird für den japanischen Bogenbau genutzt.

This is a Zelkova serrata. It is at home in East Asia, a related species can also be found on Crete. The strong heartwood is used for Japanese bow making.

Heute nehme ich euch mit in die "Gartenanlage des Geologischen Dienstes #NRW". Gemeinsam entdecken wir #Bäume aus aller Welt (wenn ihr mögt).
Der Garten wurde im Jahr 1969 angelegt.

Il y a des casse-croûtes que tu n'échangerais pour rien au monde contre un restaurant.
Petite pause dans le Cengle au dessus de Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort (Gard).

Australian Stingless Bees Build Stunning Spiral Hives and No One's Quite Sure Why

The hives do not resemble those found in other bee populations in a number of ways:

• The hives have an intricate, clockwise spiraling design.

• Each hive features only one entrance.

• The hive entrances are coated with a pathogen-blocking sticky layer, an extra line of defense for the bees which, according to Heard, “do not have a sting although they can give you a little bite with their jaws.”

Heard maintains as many as 400 of the hives at a time and says that the shape is most likely created out of necessity to protect the integrity of the core of the hive: “What we’re looking at is the advancing front of a stingless bee colony,” he says, adding, “In the middle of the spiral, you have to construct cells that move with the change.”

Some scientists also offer up the theory that the shape creates better conditions for air circulation.
