Nature Monday

First off, check out this fuzzball:

Here he is in a different form:

Those were both sent to me from a friend in Austin (her backyard), where he frequently stops by. And look at those claws in the second picture!

Okay, now look at this little guy:

That's a seed from this tree:

What tree? Gee, I don't know. That's for the so-called experts to argue about.

What's absolutely amazing about that seed is that it has that little blade. The seed doesn't detach until it's windy, and when it does, that blade spins like a helicopter blade. The seed then flies with the wind, up to over a hundred feet away (I stepped it off).

It was unbelievably beautiful, watching those little seeds fly away.
