Sunflowers























According to the Guinness World Records, the tallest sunflower to date measures 26 feet 4 inches grown by Hans-Peter Schiffer in Kaarst-Voorst, Germany.

Sunflowers exhibit a unique trait called heliotropism where the bud on the sunflower faces the sun at all times throughout the day, starting facing East and yep, ending West.

Mosquito's

Tomorrow is World Mosquito Day.

It's not really a celebration but rather we celebrate the day where a British doctor, Ronald Ross, discovered that female mosquito's transmit malaria between humans.

The discovery earned him a Nobel Prize in medicine.

How crazy would it be if this egret was a mosquito?

Heat

How are you keeping your cool?

With triple digit temperatures, the heat is on.

During this stretch, Death Valley is expected to reach 126 degrees.

I think Pacific Coast Highway is a better option.

I'm cool with that.

Furry

Attention PETA, I'm pretty sure no animals were harmed while riding this bicycle.
