This meat-eating species of sponge was recently discovered in deep ocean waters off California's Monterey Bay, and was dubbed the "harp sponge" because its structure resembles a harp or lyre turned on its side

Tony, the use of sunlight on these great beasts reveal beauty at its best. The Charming little Red Pandas and your narrative is new to me. I didn't know there were such animals! Thanks.

Good morning Tony! You are up early like me. I love that National Geographic lion picture. I also really enjoy that red pandas picture.
I hope you have a good day at work today. Appreciate you stopping by here.

From National Geographic. An article on how to photograph light and dark. This was one example that I found extremely moving.

Red Pandas. Ran into an article about new cubs at the D.C. Zoo. Learned something new. Not related to the giant panda, though live in same territory, only at higher elevations. Like bamboo mostly, but also omnivorous as needed, so greater ability to gather food.
