For no obvious reason (not to me anyway - maybe a psychologist could assist!) the thought came to me to offer some pictures featuring organisms being very white. It's nothing to do with an approaching White Christmas - it's 33 degrees C here today, with 36 degrees looming for Christmas Eve. Once I started looking, I found far more candidates than I could use today. I find white hard to photograph satisfactorily (I've mentioned before that I make no claims to being a Photographer), so bear with me...
|Great Egret Ardea modesta, Canberra.|
|White Tern Gygis alba, Lord Howe Island. This really is one of the whitest animals I know!|
|Coscoroba Swan Coscoroba coscoroba, Puerto Natales, southern Chile.|
|Unidentified moth, Manu National Park, Peru.|
Probably family Geometridae, but any suggestions welcomed!
|Featherheads, Ptilotis macrocephala, Murchison River, Western Australia.|
|Alpine Mint-bush Prostanthera cuneata, Kosciuszko National Park, New South Wales.|
|Eucalyptus victrix, Nallan Station, inland Western Australia.|
|Orchid, Stegostyla ustulata, Gungahlin Hill, Canberra.|
|Fungi, Korup National Park, western Cameroon.|
Perhaps genus Mycena, the parasol and bonnet genus?
There is plenty of scope to continue this theme, with white and with other colours.
If that's all white with you....
