Water Dragon Shedding Skin

Photograph of a large Australian Water Dragon or Eastern Water Dragon shedding its skin. The colors of the new skin are amazing. This is one of the most colorful Eastern Water Dragons I have seen (once all the old skin is gone). I added a touch of texture to the background of this image. [Courtesy Wikipedia] The Australian water dragon (Intellagama lesueurii, formerly Physignathus lesueurii), which includes the eastern water dragon (I. l. lesueurii ) and the Gippsland water dragon (I. l. howittii) subspecies, is an arboreal agamid species native to eastern Australia from Victoria northwards to Queensland. There may be a small introduced population on the south-east coast of South Australia.

Bee Laden with Pollen

[Wikipedia] A honey bee (or honeybee) is any member of the genus Apis, primarily distinguished by the production and storage of honey and the construction of perennial, colonial nests from wax. In the early 21st century, only seven species of honey bee are recognized, with a total of 44 subspecies, though historically seven to eleven species are recognized. The best known honey bee is the Western honey bee which has been domesticated for honey production and crop pollination. Honey bees represent only a small fraction of the roughly 20,000 known species of bees. Some other types of related bees produce and store honey and have been kept by humans for that purpose, including the stingless honey bees, but only members of the genus Apis are true honey bees.
