This crazy weather.
.
One week it's -18C then another week it's +18C. Then the wind blows like crazy. This cool moist weather though is perfect for non-vascular plants such as mosses. They love cool moist atmosphere because they don't have roots to absorb water.

Is it winter or fall?
.
The snow melted to give way to rain. A brown leaf became a flowerful subject of my macro fascination.

Can you guess the sex of this bee? Was he kicked out of the hive that s/he's sleeping on the fuchsia? .
He's a male. Yes, he's is sleeping. Bees do sleep specially during a cool summer day. They don't go to the hive when breeding is over as the females find them pretty much useless. Huh, isn't it a fascinating world?

Check out @weeklymobilephotograpgy and @weeklymobilemacro. They're awesome galleries for non-DLSR users.

DNA is the building block of life. Our DNA is bundled up as 23 pairs of chromosomes including a pair of sex chromosomes, XX in females and XY in males. The Y chromosome is what makes one genetically male. If you unwrap ones DNA, it could extend up to the moon 6,000x.

Black ants are generally safer than red ants. Red ants sting is caused by the formic acid in their venom.

But first - How do snails survive the harsh winter? The mucus they secret serves as an excellent anti-freeze as they hibernate.
.
I am inviting everybody to tag (old or new) their Black and white images with #bnwchallenge_jaimeconamore. I'll choose a few of my favorites.
.
Next, I'm challenging @physis14 to join the #bnwchallenge. No pressure but I hope you'll join for fun by posting 5 bnw images.

WHITE is not the absence of color. In fact it's the combination of colors in the visible spectrum.
.
I was challenged by a friend and longtime follower Flo Samontisa @Flosam_pf to do a series of 5 b&w posts.

The Asteracea, Compositae, or sometimes called Sunflower family has complex type of flower called influorescence made up of several tiny florets surrounded by involucral bracts. In simple words, this image is not a single flower.

Happy Halloween
.
This is the creepiest I can go this Halloween. Hundreds of spider eggs hatching into baby spiders.
.
So how would you call them?
a school of spiderlings
a web of spiderettes
a flock of baby spiders
.
Tell me.

Moss
.
This type of plant is photosynthetic but they are not vascular. This means they do not have roots but they get their nutrients from rain, fog, top layer of soil. The rhizomes, tiny rootlike structures that anchor them to surfaces, don't absorb water.

Ever noticed these on leaves?
.
These are produced by mites feeding on the leaves causing the plant cells to put on extra 'mitosis, (cell divisions) producing the callus or warts as seen here as red egg-like structures.

Dandelion seed's feathery bristle.

Got ya! Wish granted.

Dandelion when drank as tea, like other herbal teas, is a diuretic. It means it contains chemicals that increase urine production.

#WHPontheroad for colorful leaves sightseeing

Leaves are food factories. In the summer, leaves are colored green made mostly by chlorophyll. As fall begins, photosynthesis slows down and the varying degrees of red pigment (anthocyanin) becomes more evident which creates the red or orangey colors in maple leaves. Small amount of these colors were in the leaves throughout the summer but the chlorophyll was stronger it masking the other pigments.
