Helen Keller and the Temple of Doom

Okay. I’m done spamming you poor people with American Bitterns. I’ll go back to posting my typical fodder of wizards, doom, castles, animal GIFs, and irrelevant snatches about my life, tomorrow.

"I went to the afterdeck and sat contentedly solitary in the great remove and watched a day of forty weathers close down to discharge the long western glimmering and give the night over to the scent of wet sage, the buzz of nighthawks, the far sorrow of coyotes, and then one of the strangest voices in all of wild America, a bittern in the reeds: gulping air, inflating throat, pumping out mellow, cavernous, liquid gurgles, wobbling notes seeming to rise from beneath the river itself, a voice made from the bittern world of slow marshy waters.

For all I knew, that lone bird, sometimes known as a thunderpumper, called down the lightning and the wind which drove into my bunk to lie in the easy rocking of the river, the Musselshell ticking the hull and putting a slow creak in the mooring lines. For a few minutes I knew all the reasons I was in that farness.”

The Featured Creature: American Bittern: the “Plumper Lunking,” Camouflaging, Weirdo Bird

Seriously… you have to watch the videos in this article. Especially the last one. W-T-F!

Saw one of these at work today, for the first time in my life. They’re very goofy and paranoid creatures. Totem animal?

Most of my memorable moments at work involve seeing/interacting with the critters I come across. This little factoid, is pretty telling.

The Black Dragonfish(Idiacanthus atlanticus) of the Stomiidae family.

I love how this is like a creature from hell but it has like little pink cheeks 

deep sea anime blush stickers


fun fact those pink cheeks glow to attract unsuspecting prey
fashionable and functional with a dash of abject terror

My aesthetic.

Perhaps senpai will notice me SO I CAN CONSUME HIS FLESH

“My mother boils seawater. It sits all afternoon simmering on the stovetop, almost two gallons in a big soup pot. The windows steam up and the house smells like a storm. In the evening, a crust of salt is all that’s left at the bottom of the pot. My mother scrapes it out with a spoon. We each lick a fingertip and dip them in the salt and it’s softer than you’d think, less like sand and more like snow. We lay our fingertips on our tongues, right in the middle. It tastes like salt but like something else, too—wide, and dark. It tastes like drowning, or like falling asleep on the shore and only waking up when the tide has come up to your feet and you wonder if you’d gone on sleeping, would you have sunk?”
