We humans think we’re so cool but maybe we’ve got a thing or two coming (love this):
On Oct 8th, I was flying my quadcopter at Magazine Beach Park in Cambridge, when a hawk decided he wasn’t too happy with my invasion of his airspace…
As far as I could tell, the hawk came out unscathed, and having defeated his prey, was happy to retreat. (As soon as he flew at me, I throttled down the props to try to minimize any harm to the bird.) The quadcopter came out unscathed as well.
What an amazing photo but the story behind it is heartbreaking:
In this aerial photo taken on Sept. 27, 2014, and provided by NOAA, some 35,000 walrus gather on shore near Point Lay, Alaska. Pacific walrus looking for places to rest in the absence of sea ice are coming to shore in record numbers on Alaska’s northwest coast. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration confirms an estimated 35,000 walrus wer photographed Saturday about 700 miles northwest of Anchorage. The enormous gathering was spotted during NOAA’s annual arctic marine mammal aerial survey.
The focus of this video is apparently the cow, taking a walk with its guardian, but what I love is the dog in the stroller:
These are darling.

In 2012, we lost the magnificent Pinta Island Tortoise. How old must this guy be and what secrets might he have told us?
In 1964 we lost the Mexican Grizzly Bear:
See the full list here. It’s haunting to look at them knowing these beings will never walk the face of the Earth again.
