i love birds because they go from looking like this to looking like.....this, in seconds

I just found this beautiful piece of leatherwork in a scrap bin someone put out on my street, and I was wondering if anyone could help identify the Maori gentleman portrayed here? I’m not sure what object this piece was originally part of (I think it might’ve been a luggage tag??) but I can only assume he’s a person of some prominence.
Even if he’s not someone famous, though, I’d still like to find out who he is. I’d feel creepy keeping a stranger’s face in my house like a decoration

it's really easy for researchers to check up on them when they're in torpor/hibernating so we get lots of delightful photos like these

in Denmark they call this specific species 'hasselmus' which means 'hazel mouse' :3

successfully channeled my energy into dinner tonight—curry udon with roasted kabocha squash ​:blobmelt:​ unreasonably proud of myself for managing to cook all this without a hitch. Not the prettiest photos, but curry in general doesn’t photograph easily so :shrug:

I have acquired nutrients

excited to try these tbh. I fuckin love eggs and am entranced by the concept of salted egg yolk as a flavor but there’s no good Asian markets near me that sell any snacks in this vein. Mom and I went out to a part of San Leandro to get some air and we stopped by a marketplace on the way back & got a bunch of stuff including this

We got the smallest most adorable tangerines I have ever seen in my life in our monthly produce box and I am unreasonably excited about them. Their peeled wedges are the size of a fruit gummy and they’re perfectly ripe and edible...LOOK HOW TEENY....

I’ve found that pretty much the only thing the iPhone camera is consistently good at is macro photography. please enjoy some nice moss I saw yesterday
