From everything I have read, the Burmese people continue to be enraged that their military stole their democracy and continue to turn out in great numbers to protest. There hasn't been a lot of humor in their protests that I have seen but I thought these plastic shields similar to what the police carry were quite clever.

In spite of a declared state of emergency, rain, no leaders, the public transport system shut down, and new laws (selfies taken at protest sites can get you two years in jail), large peaceful protests continued all over Bangkok and Thailand for the 5th straight day.

Protea is both the botanical name and the English common name of a genus of South African flowering plants, sometimes also called sugarbushes. In local tradition, the Protea flower represents change and hope.

 

Le nom « Protea » fut donné en 1771 par Carl von Linné (Protée en français). Quelques plantes du Cap lui avaient été envoyées : il a recouru au nom du dieu grec, Protée, qui pouvait changer de forme à volonté, car à partir de la même fleur de base, ce genre montre une étonnante variation de formes et de couleurs suivant l’espèce.

I don't normally do birding, so I have a steep learning curve ahead. But I could not resist this incredible scene with an estimated 400 nests in this one colony.

Protea - levana -

Valle de Aran (Pirineo catalán)

En territorio de alta montaña fuimos seducidos por sus constantes aleteos y mereció la pena bailar al son de sus vuelos pues el reverso de esta mariposa también es muy bonito. La única planta nutricia de esta especie es la ortiga (Urtica dioica) y su actividad se desarrolla en proximidad a dichas plantas.

 

Map butterfly

Aran Valley (Catalan Pyrenees)

In high mountain territory we were seduced by its constant flutters and it was worth dancing to the sound of its flights because the reverse of this butterfly is also very beautiful. The only nutritious plant of this species is the nettle (Urtica dioica) and its activity develops in proximity to these plants.

One more tableau de la troupe from the diplomatic incident between the Netherlands and Turkey that became known in Dutch as the Turkijerel. It is about the last one. I left the scene at 23.40, wanting to catch the train to Amsterdam. Therefore I missed the subsequent rioting.

NUOVO LIBRO - NEW BOOK

 

Il volume è un'ode alla biodiversità delle acque dolci. Attraverso racconti di campo, dati scientifici e immagini inedite, vengono esplorati gli ambienti tra i più preziosi e minacciati d'Italia, dalle sorgenti d'alta quota alle lagune costiere, passando per ruscelli, fiumi e grandi laghi. Granchi, gamberi, spugne, larve di insetti nascosti tra la vegetazione del fondo; mitologiche lamprede che compiono migrazioni di centinaia di chilometri per accoppiarsi e poi morire; una grande varietà di pesci autoctoni e rarefatti; rospi e tritoni durante il periodo riproduttivo, l'elusivo proteo delle grotte sotterranee, bisce che catturano prede di grandi dimensioni; uccelli limicoli impegnati nelle loro frenetiche attività nel fango, mammiferi all'abbeverata. E poi, i problemi di conservazione, dall'inquinamento all'alterazione degli argini, dall'introduzione di specie alloctone alla pesca eccessiva, e alcuni progetti per salvare il salvabile, come la reintroduzione della trota marmorata e dello storione cobice. Per realizzare le immagini, ore di sessioni nel ghiaccio d'alta quota, nel fango dei grandi laghi oscuri, e nella corrente impetuosa dei corsi d'acqua più grandi del nostro Paese.

Jardí Botànic Mar i Murtra, Blanes

Histoire d'une rencontre...

 

En quittant Le Cap pour atteindre le cap de Bonne Espérance vous traversez obligatoirement une zone côtière d'aspect austère recouverte d'une végétation diversifiée appelée fynbos une sorte de garrigue locale qui rassemble plus de 1000 plantes endémiques.

Parmi ce jardin botanique naturel et sauvage une grande fleur ne peut passer inaperçue :la protéa (ou protée).

Il en existe plus d'une centaine de variétés différentes et l'une d’entre-elles est devenue l'emblème de l'Afrique du Sud : la protéa royale !

Lors du printemps austral c'est un vrai émerveillement de découvrir des buissons entiers égayés par cette fleur unique.

Nous avons eu la chance de le découvrir dans son milieu naturel dans 2 cavités de Slovénie.

.

Appelée aussi "poisson humain" du fait de sa peau nue, cet animal a tout pour fasciner.

Troglobie, il ne vit que sous-terre.

Ayant une espérance de vie maximale de plus d'un siècle, il peut rester plus jusqu'à 10 ans sans manger !

C’est sous la direction de Le Nôtre que fut construit, entre 1679 et 1681, le bassin de Neptune, nommé alors pièce d’eau sous le Dragon, ou pièce des Sapins. Ange-Jacques Gabriel en modifia légèrement le tracé en 1736 et, en 1740, on mit en place le décor sculpté. Trois groupes : Neptune et Amphitrite, Protée ainsi que Le Dieu Océan réalisé par Jean-Baptise Lemoyne. Le nouveau bassin, inauguré par Louis XV, suscita l’admiration par le nombre, l’ampleur et la variété des jets d’eau jouant sur les sculptures de plomb. Il compte quatre-vingt-dix-neuf jets d’eau qui constituent un extraordinaire ensemble hydraulique.

Sobre la limpia arena, en el tartesio llano

por donde acaba España y sigue el mar,

hay dos hombres que apoyan la cabeza en la mano,

uno duerme y el otro parece meditar.

El uno, en la mañana de tibia primavera,

junto a la mar tranquila,

ha puesto entre sus ojos y el mar que reverbera,

los párpados, que borran el mar en la pupila.

Y se ha dormido, y sueña con el pastor Proteo,

que sabe los rebaños del marino guardar;

y sueña que le llaman las hijas de Nereo,

y ha oído a los caballos de Poesidón hablar.

El otro mira el agua. Su pensamiento flota;

hijo del mar, navega -o se pone a volar-.

Su pensamiento tiene un vuelo de gaviota,

que ha visto un pez de plata en el agua saltar.

Y piensa: Es esta vida una ilusión marina

de un pescador que un día ya no puede pescar.

El soñador ha visto que el mar se le ilumina,

y sueña que es la muerte una ilusión del mar.

(Antonio Machado)

Proteo oppure Glauco; è un immenso mascherone antropomorfo con la bocca spalancata, che sembra emergere direttamente dalle viscere della Terra, sormontato da un grande globo di pietra, sulla cui cima è posta una piccola torre: questa iconografia rimanda al mondo, dominato dal simbolo degli Orsini. it.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parco_dei_Mostri
