Peek a boo chicken! A funny shot of a hen through a knothole by Flickr photographer Darrell Wyatt. Here’s an interesting fact about chickens: Did you know chickens are able to understand that even when an object is taken away from them and hidden, they still comprehend that it exists. Not many animals have the ability to do this. Human children cannot even do this!

What a great use of colours in this backlit shot of a Japanese Maple (by Redroom Studios, taken in Niagara Falls, Canada)!  Did you know the first known Japanese maple to arrive in North America was in 1862, and was planted in Long Island, NY.

How important is your family? Sometimes, I forget how thankful I am for the family that I have. Thank you ~jessS~ for reminding me how lucky I am with just a simple photo silhouette shot.

Shrooms! The lighting of this photo was amazingly well done on this awesome shot by Aardvarklord! Some interesting facts about mushrooms: One serving of mushrooms contains more dietary fibre than celery or a slice of whole-wheat bread!  Mushrooms are one of the few natural sources of vitamin D. Mushrooms contain more protein than most vegetables. One medium brown mushroom contains more potassium than a banana. Mushrooms are a great source of B-vitamins (Thiamin, Ribofloxin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid, Biotin and Folic Acid).
