Hi, I'm Jacob. I love all walks of life, but I have a soft spot for mycology, and I like to post pictures of cool fungi I find sometimes. I'll specify if pictures are mine in the tags. Hit Counters

Fighting fish have been bred for over 120 years to achieve the beautiful variations we see today.

Eudia pavonia

Avril 2014


though usually hidden to the human eye, naturally occurring marine biofluorescence can be seen under certain wavelengths of light (like ultraviolet) which causes the cells of the organisms seen here to absorb the light — and some of the photon’s energy — and then emit back a now less energetic light with a longer wavelength and thus a different colour.

biofluorescence is not be confused with bioluminescence (see posts), which is a  chemical reaction endemic to an organisms that causes them to glow.
