hibernation, by ingo arndt (similar)

(though not all bats hibernate, those that do usually live at high latitudes where insect prey becomes scarce in winter. for six months or more they will last on a few grams of stored fat by dropping their body temperature and slowing their heart rates (and metabolism) to 10 beats a minute. by spring, most have lost half their body weight.)

Why are hollow logs hollow? Science side explain?

A variety of reasons often related to forest fires and/or bacterial/other decay. Trees can get diseased. It may be in an environment where the inside has excess water and the outside stays dry. An animator at have chosen to draw it that way for an aesthetic effect. A hole from an amputated limb’s scar may have provided a weak spot for termites. Onamacare made the log lazy and it decided it didn’t need to work on the inside anymore. A badger rented a power auger from Home Depot and drilled the hole, then made it her den. Heartbreak left it hollow. Lightning. Sub-par quality control standards in Chinese factories. Godfarts. The middle is the oldest part.

A few weeks back, @mrssevendays and I were hiking at @cincynature, just before all of the #daffodils bloomed. We found this hollowed out log that - when you lay flat(ish) on the ground and looked through - gave a lovely view of the daffs-to-be. We laughed and said - oh we’ll have to come back when they bloom…. And then over the weekend, we took a slightly different route which took us down this part of the trail instead of up. And there was our log again. Well dang if we didn’t have to fulfill our mission. Tough shot with an iPhone and two nutty ladies on the trails - did anyone see us??? Anywho, don’t really know how I feel about the edit, but I like the story. So now you know! #flowers #daffodil #nature #trails #hiking #outdoors #cincinnati #cincynature #tangledfx #floral #yellow — by puggirl http://ift.tt/1qS379R

Harvesting sap for maple syrup - now vs. the future.

[Video footage by Luke Groskin and Mark Isselhardt]

This video is interesting on many levels. I had always wondered how much tapping trees for syrup or rubber hurt the trees (I believe it hurts the rubber trees more). Kind of a typical ‘here’s some counter-intuitive findings’ NPR piece.

Does extracting the syrup lead to a compromised internal integrity of the trunk when it dies, this making it more likely to hollow out and be ripe for my blog? Nope.

In Wahkeena Creek 100 yards downstream from the spring. Would this not look good in my backyard?!

I am over the moon right now. I found a hollow log for the hollow log blog here on Tumblr. This has been my mission for months now and I found it in my own back yard. Bucket list item complete. 

Connie-awanderingsoul is a fantastic photographer!
