Description: This photo recorded the light pollution in downtown Montreal at night for a short time with a shutter speed of twenty seconds. The content of the photo contains two parts: buildings, and lighting. For buildings, only blue-gray tones are retained. And the bright orange is used in the lighting part to form a sharp contrast with the blue-gray buildings, thus highlighting the light pollution of the city. Light pollution is excessive, misdirected, or inappropriate outdoor lighting. Too much light pollution washes out the view of the Universe, increasing energy consumption, interferes with astronomical research, disrupts ecosystems, and affects the health and safety of humans and wildlife. Light pollution can have as great an impact on the planet as levels of carbon monoxide and other airborne.

Description: This picture clearly shows the path of light reflected. Because the edges of the glass have been cut into multiple bevels, light coming in from the edges will be reflected at multiple angles. The transmittance of glass is limited, so there only part of the light can get through it. Therefore, we can see that light had been reflected back when it irradiated to the surface of the transparent glass. But at the same time, there are still some lights can go through it, so the brightness of the reflected light was reduced, and the light internal reflection in the glass makes it looks like had been light up. At the same time, the rough surface of the table diffuses the light, reflecting parallel incoming light in many different directions, so the reflection looks blurry.

Description: Foregathering With The Kingfisher is a photo representing a beautiful Kingfisher picking up a small fish in its sharp beak. The photo shows the food chains between animals and how our mother Earth conducting our environemnt in a scientific manner. The weight of the fish that a kingfisher eats every day accounts for about 60% of its body weight. They will squat for a long time in a place with a good view of the water (such as a sticking branch, a protruding lotus, or a protruding stone platform on the shore). Once they see the prey, they will rush out like an arrow from the string. Entering the water, grabbing the fish, exiting the water, and flying back to the resting place are almost completed in an instant.

Description: The ability of a living being to adapt to a disturbing agent, adverse state, or situation is known as RESILIENCE, which I appreciate in the image I captured where we observe the growth of fungi between the holes in some wooden planks. The spores of Molds grow when they are deposited in places where there is excessive humidity, although the wood could have been in a state of decomposition and useless because of the accumulated humidity, it served as a dwelling place for the organisms to grow, reproduce and lodge there; transforming what could have been ruined in a wonderful art of nature.

Description: The plasma ball is made of glass and is filled with noble gas. The ball has a black spherical electrode in the center. After powering-up, the noble gas becomes ionized and undergoes q1energy-level transition, which produces the dazzling light.

Description: Petal characteristics come from biological maps in flower buds, patterns of arrows that guide cell polarity (function) and interact with Jagged genes for growth control. This helps to attract pollinators through signs such as branched lines pointing to the center, turning into communication systems.

Description: We can observe math and geometry in nature. According to biologists, flowers have Living Rhythms, Forms and special patterns to ensure maximum efficiency, optimal utilization of the available space, and maximum availability of sunlight to all parts and structures. For example, in my picture I took a close look at the Asclepias curassavicas head where we observe geometrical patterns. This patterns and structures were also explained in math by Fibonacci.

Description: The birds in the photo are called Garrulax albogularis. Here, a Garrulax Albogularis shares food, which I think is to save the female energy to lay eggs. The male has found food for her. These birds are usually in small groups of 5 to more than 10 individuals. They mainly live on the ground and forage under the forest or in the shrubs. The breeding period of Garrulax albogularis is from May to July. Nests are in the mountain forest, placed in the undergrowth of the bush or on the branches of the small tree. Their nest just like a cup, built by the grass stem, grass leaves, grass roots and other materials, the pad has a fine grass stem and fibrous roots. There are mostly 3 to 4 eggs in each brood. The eggs are dark blue and oval in shape. The size of these eggs is 29 mm × 21 mm.

Description: The first thing in any human body that looks attractive is the eyes.Which in most cases returns to the color of the iris of the eye.Light eye color is due to low melanin and high collagen. The intertwined textures of color that are placed on top of each other. The eyes are the most powerful camera in the world, and no camera has ever been built with eye features and wonders.

Description: What is appreciated is a plasma lamp, it works like a magnet, its difference is that it is more powerful, it emulates what we know today as the northern lights inside. Its function mechanism is a bit complex, it consists of creating an artificial magnet through a wire wound inside the sphere, which contains an inert gas at low pressure. When the magnet is lit, the gas enters a state of excitement (this is what causes the beautiful colors). When an object is brought close to the glass, it alters the field of the magnet directing the rays to the interference (in this case the finger).
