    That's wonderful. I received something just as suprising but with toxic slugs today. We need to get out more, or find national geographics subscriptions.

    I'm not clear on the specifics, but I believe it would be illegal to post printed national geographic images here - the online ones should be fine though. Anyone know the rules on this? I'd love to have a national geographic little ref archive.

    Beautiful, I've never thought that it will look that way, but then again small bits of snow looks also beautiful when zoomed in. Thanks for sharing!

    Never knew sand was so awesome.
    Nature truly is beautiful in every way.

    EDIT: How did you manage to get the JPEGs? It only plays as a flash slide show on the site.
