"Here's Looking at You," by Roeselien Raimond, via Flickr. -- "Firecrest - regulus ignicapillus - Vuurgoudhaantje I didn't know it was possible, but I found a firecrest that was willing to pause his flying and hopping for a split second. He even granted me an intense look in the camera and then....he was gone as if it never happened..." -- I love his tiny little orange Mohawk!!
Zumaia, Basque Country, Spain. The town has two beaches (Itzurun and Santiago), which are of interest to geologists because they are situated among the longest set of continuous rock strata in the world. Known locally as the "flysch" they date from the mid-cretaceous period to the present, a time period of over 100 million years. The K-T boundary is present at the Itzurun beach, and fossils can be found, notably of ammonites. The strata stretches along a distance of about 8 km.

The Rollright Stones, a complex of three Neolithic and Bronze Age megalithic monuments in Oxfordshire. Now known as The King’s Men, The King Stone and The Whispering Knights, each is distinct in design and purpose, and were built at different periods in late prehistory. The stretch of time during which the three monuments were erected here bears witness to a continuous tradition of ritual behavior on sacred ground, from the 4th to the 2nd millennium BCE.
