229: Ringed Seal



Cuties! The whole "voluntary breathing" thing mystifies me a bit. You can read a bit more on how they breathe here.

227: Regal Ringneck Snake


I love the color "surprise" when you see the underside of this grey snake. The eats other snakes thing is gross though.

Bits & Pieces


Vegan brunch! 

I have a love/hate relationship with Summer, with the love side mostly being that all of my favorite fruits and veggies are in abundance. LOVING all the fruits lately. Blackberries made an appearance in my CSA this week and I always feel a sort of nostalgia with them. My sisters and Dad and I used to go out in the late summer, dressed in long sleeves and pants, into the back woods by our house to pick ALL OF THE BLACKBERRIES. No seriously, we would pick so many. And then my mom would make pies of deliciousness out of them. A fond childhood memory!  



Whole Grain Sweet biscuits with homemade jam made from the above blackberries and strawberries

222: Rat



I saw a subway rat yesterday, while waiting on the platform for the train, and the elderly man standing next to me meowed really loudly at the rat as it scampered by down on the tracks. Ahh NYC.

217: Quokka



In photos and videos, the quokka is adorable, but I think I would flip out if they came too close to me. A bit too squirrel-like for me...

I think it's fun to see what a butterfly looked like in the caterpillar stage. This quirky little dude becomes this!

213: Pygmy Hippo


Pretty sure I would die of cuteness if a little tiny pygmy hippo ran past me in the forest. Die. Dead.
