“Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.”
Once in a while, you need too take a step back and realize what’s around you. Last week I went and visited Fire Sky Private Game Farm in Limpopo, getting out of the daily routine and finding myself surrounded by fresh air, an endless horizon and stunning wildlife. Enjoyed every second.
Like the Eye of Sauron, this eye never sleeps. The Red-eyed tree frog (Agalychnis callidryas) from Costa Rica has the upper part of the lower eyelid translucent, allowing the frog to see its surrounding even with the eyes closed. The eyelid carries a pattern of golden lines that obscure the normally highly visible red iris of the eye.
