Red, Timely post. Thousands of Honey Bees are getting nectar from the ivy blooms (on my house) it's really wild and somewhat scary to watch them. They showed up over the weekend and are still here. I wonder where their hive is.......Me and the dogs exit the house and move quickly away from the house when we go out. lol
Don't follow me, I'm lost!

Doberman, my honeybees had taken over my hummingbird feeders, much to the hummers' chagrin . I finally had to take the feeders down, normally I don't object to sharing nectar with the bees but since the house is on the market I didn't think it was a good idea to have hundreds of honey bees taking up residence on our back deck!!! lol.

Thanks, Pagent.  I was thinking along those lines too about the jellyfish.

Here's a fun, factual Owl video that is floating across Face Book.  Scroll down to the 2nd pic to click on the video:

Well, jellyfish or not, it sure is a strange looking creature!

Glog, thanks for the owl video.  That was quite a look into an ear hole.

TY glog!!   :D :D :D :D  Loved the video and the narrator was priceless.  Owls are my sorta/kinda new found love and I too forget that they could also "rip your face off" they are sooooo cute.

gg, So very interesting.  I have seen ants carry other ants.  Thanks

Did you know that butterflies taste with their feet?
A group of flamingos is called a "flamboyance".
Worms communicate by snuggling.
An animal called the "quokka" is the happiest animal in the world.

GG, I've seen ants carry dead ants, but I never knew they have a "graveyard!"  That's a great tidbit of info, thanks. 

Glog, thank you for all the cool facts you posted.  I especially like the flamboyance of flamingos!

I've seen ants carry other ants too, but never thought about it being a funeral procession.

I'm trying to imagine what it would be like to taste with one's feet.  :-\
