^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ interesting photography - I'm sure I've see that photo before, recently ^^^^^^^^^^

North America's only relation to the Kangaroo - the opossum. Another marsupial.

When I found that photograph of kangaroos on Google, I was astonished by that superimposition of 4 planes (I don't know the appropriate technical term). So I was glad to post it here, then in the 'philosophy of photography' topic too.

Yes - it's quite dramatic because of the reversal of normal focus - the kangaroo in the far background is in focus and the nearest one is fuzzed totally.
I guess that it's a totally manually-controlled camera. Any 'auto-focus' would jump to putting the foreground into focus.
My impression is it's set to a very low 'f-stop' which gives a sharply defined narrow 'depth of field' (The aperture is wide open, things at one very specific distance from the camera are in focus - everything else is fuzzy). Then manually, the photographer focussed on the furthest kangaroo.
Not difficult if you have a camera like that - but very effective as an 'art-shot'.

It's by Stefano Unterthiner, and appeared in National Geographic.

You can start with an A if you can't find any animal which name starts with Ä ;-)

Yer . . . couldn't find an Ä, so went with Aa.



the Aardwolf - not really related to a wolf, but never mind.

^^^^^^^^^^^^ That's a new one to me - looks like half-cat, half-dog ^^^^^^^^^

This animal uses polarised ultra-violet light in a navigation system which beats GPS hands-down. Researchers in the University of Sussex are trying to copy it.

Proverbs 6:6-8
Look to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:
Which having no guide, overseer, or ruler,
Provideth her meat in the summer, and gathereth her food in the harvest.

Great, Drag0 :)



Bear with me, everyone, as I'm referring to a Latin name:

TIMARCHA TENEBRICOSA

Commonly known as bloody-nosed beetle (or spewer or blood spewing beetle).
It is a leaf beetle native to Europe. The beetle can be found in southern and central Europe, and is common in Britain and Ireland.

As a defensive behaviour, the adult timarchas exude droplets of their bright red-orange hemolymph by breaking thin membranes in their mouth, which is foul-tasting to predators. This phenomenon of "bleeding" exists in some other insects, such as ladybugs.
