Safety Bear | Green Wings Award

This week’s Green Wings Award goes to this helpful bear straightening out a fallen traffic cone.

Rainbow on the Wetlands

At first glance you might consider this oily sheen reflecting the colors an environmental problem, but it is actually a natural phenomenon that occurs in wetlands and marsh. The oil is produced by microbes in the water and we tend to see it when it becomes concentrated, as it does in these isolated pockets.

Leaf Sheep

This adorable cartoon of a creature is too cute to be real, right? The “leaf sheep” is actually the Costasiella kuroshimae, a species of sacoglossan sea slug which can be found near Japan, Indonesia, and the Philippines. With feelers that look like ears and a vibrant leaf-like body, the leaf sheep is our adorable image […]

Rare Coyamito Agate

Absolutely beautiful and rare Coyamito Agate from Chihuahua, Mexico, which is the only place in the world they are found! The formation of Agate is most often from deposition of layers of silica filling voids in volcanic vesicles or other cavities. The layers form in stages with some of new layers providing an alternating color.

The Eye in the Arch

We are so grateful to our Biofriendly Planet readers as someone reached out and let us know that this image was taken by photographer Zach Cooley. We couldn’t help but marvel at this stunning photo of a seemingly omniscient eye watching over Earth, which was achieved over two nights of single shots and double exposures. […]

Marbled Orb-weaver

As we continue into the fall, the Marbled Orb-weaver (Araneus marmoreus) is the perfect example of nature’s autumnal color palette. This species of spider is sometimes called the pumpkin spider and for good reason. This plump arachnid is found throughout all of Canada to Alaska, the northern Rockies, from North Dakota to Texas, and then east to the Atlantic, as […]
