Here is a breathtaking photo gallery from National Geographic – Visions of Earth 2012
Why I chose these shots:
- It’s summer and I feel like this orangutan (loungin!)
- Our neighborhood now has raccoons, two of them. They are weird too. Last week, I was writing outside and they popped up on the fence, right in front of the dog, and started cooing at me. Like they wanted milk or something. Then the other night, like 3am, there was an epic battle on a neighbor’s tree between the raccoon’s and possibly the possum who used to patrol this territory. There was all sorts of scratching, hissing, branches shaking, and yelling to wake us up.
- Just to show you how awe-inspiring the gallery is – Dolomites, Italy (part of the Alps).
