April 2017 Part 2 - Antarctica: Weddell seals - POI - WOW


#61


Edit:
I think I must have forgotten to mention “I see a seal” in that one :blush:


#62

Wow! You sure can find them! Not a clue. Best guess would be water or heat coming up from below and following cracks. Sheesh!


#63

The late mother of a guy I used to work with was a “hooker.” She worked in a garment factory. :rofl:


#64

Here’s a beautiful multi-colored ice breakup (hint…hint…Em!). Also check out the “Weddell Seal Question” topic. I inadvertently posted a couple photos there. :frowning_face:

And here’s an example from the darker side - a gargoyle.

@cageycat got in on this action too! I see her trying to hide by blending in with the emerald green! Tag! Your it, Cagey! :grin:

And here’s a snow-covered sleeping seal.

I’m shocked Jim that you did not see the pipe Alien man! He’s sitting. Unfortunately, others on the spaceship broke their pipes.

And on the other… I was just trying to keep the seal from awakening! :-p~~~

:heart_eyes::heart_eyes: I’m loving all this emerald broken glass :heart_eyes::heart_eyes:
I spent a lot of time last night zooming in and out to fit in all that I see. Gets tricky manoeuvring round the various TN tick boxes and such without being forced to cut out a particular detail though; sometimes wish I could rotate the image before I crop to get more in :confused:


#70

I saw this last night (well, about 3 AM), and couldn’t decide upon what it looked like. I was thinking more in the terms of a spine (left and lower left), etc… I was zooming in and out to no avail so I gave up. Never did it occurs to me “broken glass.” :smiley:


#71

No seals here… just the abominable snowman trudging through waist-deep snow.

Seems everyone is caught in the deep snow… even this poor little piglet!

EDIT 26 Aug.: 6 Days later I land right smack on the piglet with the poly around it. Here’s the link directly to it:

And @cageycat always seems to show up no matter where I look! I found you, Cagey, surfing on a 2-headed surfboard (literally 2-headed). :smiley:

Here’s a pretty one (multi-colored ice breaking up), followed by “snow mole” tunnels.

Last one for tonight… a cyclist and unicycle sinking after having fallen through the ice. Looks like a giant fish is coming up behind him.

#75

Sorry… couldn’t resist. Here’s a beast attacked from the side by another. The lighter-colored one on the left seems surprised/hurt. Now I’m done for the day!

#76

I think I found Olive Oyle. (top left inside the poly. She’s yelling bout something!)

Anyone seen Popeye?


#77

Seems to Admiral Byrd was right.
Antarctica Green…



#78

I was reading about the “greening” of Antarctica. Seems as the rocks warm up, lichen can come out of dormancy and start growing again. Of course they don’t get very tall - just a few millimeters high, but enough to give a green tint to the landscape. We’ll probably see a lot more of Antarctica turning green (and red) in the future.


#79

This looks like someone fell asleep outside and got covered in snow.

That wasn’t you? (Our forum’s demand for 20 characters ruins humor!)
