The male escort humpback whale seen here is emitting a curtain of bubbles as it swims behind a female (left) during a competitive group.  The bubble curtain may be meant as warning or visual obstruction to other male whales interested in the mother, Megaptera novaeangliae, Maui

Vermillion rockfish, Sebastes miniatus Closeup view of the rattles of an adult Southern Pacific rattlesnake.  The southern Pacific rattlesnake is common in southern California from the coast through the desert foothills to elevations of 10,000 feet.  It reaches 4-5 feet (1.5m) in length, Crotalus viridis helleri Pronghorn antelope, Lamar Valley.  The Pronghorn is the fastest North American land animal, capable of reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.

A Pacific harbor seal leaves the surf to haul out on a sandy beach.  This group of harbor seals, which has formed a breeding colony at a small but popular beach near San Diego, is at the center of considerable controversy.  While harbor seals are protected from harassment by the Marine Mammal Protection Act and other legislation, local interests would like to see the seals leave so that people can resume using the beach, Phoca vitulina richardsi, La Jolla, California Pacific harbor seal, mother and pup, Phoca vitulina richardsi, La Jolla, California Mountain lion, Sierra Nevada foothills, Mariposa, California, Puma concolor

Aspen trees display Eastern Sierra fall colors, Lake Sabrina, Bishop Creek Canyon, Populus tremuloides, Bishop Creek Canyon, Sierra Nevada Mountains Flores Island (foreground) and Clayoquot Sound, aerial photo, near Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island Detail within the Mandelbrot set fractal.  This detail is found by zooming in on the overall Mandelbrot set image, finding edges and buds with interesting features.  Fractals are complex geometric shapes that exhibit repeating patterns typified by self-similarity, or the tendency for the details of a shape to appear similar to the shape itself.  Often these shapes resemble patterns occurring naturally in the physical world, such as spiraling leaves, seemingly random coastlines, erosion and liquid waves.  Fractals are generated through surprisingly simple underlying mathematical expressions, producing subtle and surprising patterns.  The basic iterative expression for the Mandelbrot set is z = z-squared + c, operating in the complex (real, imaginary) number set, Mandelbrot set
