A Florida manatee, or West Indian Manatee, swims slowly through the clear waters of Crystal River, Trichechus manatus, Three Sisters Springs Purple owls clover, Rancho La Costa, Carlsbad The bisons massive head is its most characteristic feature. Its forehead bulges because of its convex-shaped frontal bone. Its shoulder hump, dwindling bowlike to the haunches, is supported by unusually long spinal vertebrae. Over powerful neck and shoulder muscles grows a great shaggy coat of curly brown fur, and over the head, like an immense hood, grows a shock of black hair. Its forequarters are higher and much heavier than its haunches. A mature bull stands about 6 1/2 feet (2 meters) at the shoulder and weighs more than 2,000 pounds (900 kilograms). The bisons horns are short and black. In the male they are thick at the base and taper abruptly to sharp points as they curve outward and upward; the females horns are more slender, Bison bison, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming Delicate Arch, dusted with snow, at sunset, with the snow-covered La Sal mountains in the distance.  Delicate Arch stands 45 feet high, with a span of 33 feet, atop of bowl of slickrock sandstone, Arches National Park, Utah Owl Canyon, a beautiful slot canyon that is part of the larger Antelope Canyon system.

Page, Arizona, Navajo Tribal Lands Devil's Postpile, a spectacular example of columnar basalt.  Once molten and under great pressure underground, the lava that makes up Devil's Postpile cooled evenly and slowly, contracting and fracturing into polygonal-sided columns.  The age of the formation is estimated between 100 and 700 thousand years old.  Sometime after the basalt columns formed, a glacier passed over the formation, cutting and polishing the tops of the columns.  The columns have from three to seven sides, varying because of differences in how quickly portions of the lava cooled, Devils Postpile National Monument, California Devil's Postpile, a spectacular example of columnar basalt.

Delicate Arch stands 45 feet high, with a span of 33 feet, atop of bowl of slickrock sandstone, Arches National Park, Utah Lowlying plants grow where a forest fire has cleared the forest floor of debris, allowing seeds of small shrubs and trees to take root.  The charred and burnt trees remain behind, some of them still alive in spite of their blackened appearance, Mariposa Grove, Yosemite National Park, California Lowlying plants grow where a forest fire has cleared the forest floor of debris, allowing seeds of small shrubs and trees to take root.

This 10-inch-tall burrowing owl is standing besides its burrow. These burrows are usually created by squirrels, prairie dogs, or other rodents and even turtles, and only rarely dug by the owl itself, Athene cunicularia, Athene cunicularia hypugaea, Salton Sea, Imperial County, California Fallen coast redwood tree.  This tree will slowly decompose, providing a substrate and nutrition for new plants to grow and structure for small animals to use.
