despite being more dense than water, fire ants manage to survive in floods by clinging to each other and forming makeshift life rafts. as demonstrated in this picture, the life rafts are virtually unsinkable. this technique allows fire ants to survive weeks after the flood has killed most of the other insects.
when people say they love the deep sea i’m always like ” are you sure” because of these:

I think that’s exactly WHY most people say they love the deep sea!
Blue fields, Hitachi Seaside Park, Japan
The park has total area of 3.5 hectares and the flowers are astonishing all year round. You will find a different diversity of flower blossoming in each season, over the “Miharashi No Oka“, a hill imposing a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. The Park is known to be a Flowers Paradise.Nemophilas are the flowers with clear blue petals. During spring, around 4.5 million blue nemophilas bloom all over the park. The blooming period is called “Nemophilia Harmony”
Native to Australia, the finger lime(Citrus australasica) is a rare rainforest tree from the Australian east coast. The finger lime holds globular juice vesicles which have been likened to a “lime caviar “, which can be used as a garnish or added to various recipes. The fresh vesicles have the effect of a burst of effervescent tangy flavour as they are chewed. The fruit juice is acidic and similar to that of a lime.
Explanation: The broad dust tail of Comet PanSTARRS (C/2011 L4) has become a familiar sight for many northern hemisphere comet watchers, as the comet fades but rises higher above the western horizon after sunset. This view of the popular comet may seem a little fantastic, though. Sweeping away from the Sun and trailing behind the comet’s orbit, the curving dust tail also seems to stream away from a shining mountaintop castle. Comet Castle might be an appropriate name in this scene, but its traditional name is Castle Hohenzollern. Taken on March 15 with an extreme telephoto lens, the Comet Castle image was captured in exceptionally clear skies about 80 kilometers away from Stuttgart, Germany.
