A leaping penguin takes the plunge into icy waters in Antarctica as its companions prepare to follow suit in this incredible image.

The playful penguins were captured leaping from rock to rock and jumping into the sea off Cuverville Island.

Photographer Paul Souders, from Seattle, U.S., spent several days documenting the antics of gentoo and king penguins in freezing temperatures on Antarctic islands, capturing breathtaking scenes that resemble a real-life version of the hit animated film Happy Feet.

One photograph captures a gentoo in mid-air above the ocean, leaving a trail of droplets in its wake.

Gentoo penguins reach a height of 30 inches and weigh around 12lbs when fully grown.

 

Like other breeds of penguin, gentoos can appear awkward waddling around on land, but the creatures are quite at home in the water.

Their streamlined bodies and paddle-shaped flippers can propel them to speeds of up to 22 miles an hour under water - faster than any other diving bird.

Brinquedos pedagógicos reciclados para berçárioVou postar mais algumas dicas para trabalhar com reciclagem de materiais, esta para os professores de maternal e berçário. Esta dica é para fazer seus próprios brinquedos pedagógicos, usando material que você tem em casa. A sugestão aqui proposta tem o objetivo de fortalecer mãos e pulsos, explorar os níveis de habilidades motoras finas e grossas, a concentração, curiosidade de causa e efeito, entre outros benefícios. Dica daqui.
Eu amei esta dica acima, feita com latinha de leite e palitos de picolé pintados. Pra fazer basta encapara a latinha com papel. Depois corte fendas na tampa, para encaixar os palitos. Pinte os palitos com tintas coloridas. A ideia do brinquedo é que o bebê retire e empurre as fitas observando suas habilidades.
Vamos ver outras sugestões? Todas usando latinhas de leite em ninho, toddy, nesca…

Cities After World War III

Apocalypse now: Russian artist transforms real-life photographs to show how cities might look after the end of the world

You could be forgiven for thinking that these incredible images are simply scene grabs from a computer game or film depicting some imaginary and non-existent world.
But these pictures are actually photographs of modern-day cities around the globe that have been manipulated by Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin.
Manyuhin starts with original snapshots and then adds digital decay and overgrowth to depict what well-known places on earth would look like after an apocalypse. This image from Russian artist Vladimir Manyuhin's Life after the Apocalypse is reminiscent of scenes from the 2007 film I am Legend By night: The same scene of a deserted city - minus some lions - with the sun slowly setting in the background Underground: Manyuhin has transformed a picture of a tube line in to a scene of destructio…
