Insanely-Rare Bird Photographed For First Time

Hooray for wholesome and triumph moments, during this insane time! 

We definitely will soak up any good news coming our way, because we all need it. Need to hear it and need to share it. 

The South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher was first discovered 130 years ago in 1890.

Since then, it's eluded scientists for over a hundred years because of how difficult it is to see and how is quietly darts from perch to perch, seemingly invisible.

In March 2020, a Filipino biologist, Miguel David De Leon, was able to capture the ultra-rare and mysterious bird. 

Photographed for the first time in the history of mankind, presenting the South Philippine Dwarf Kingfisher!

French Scientist Used Photography To Explain Why Cats Always Land On their Feet

The phenomenon of the "cat-turn" by which a cat always lands on its feet has been an enigma since the 19th century. 

The French scientist/inventor, Étienne-Jules Marey, who was interested in the motion of objects, decided to use a special technique in photography, called chromatography, to solve the enigma.

He used an anonymous white French cat and dropped it from an unspecified height in the Bois de Boulogne, filming its descent at 12 frames per second. The photos show how a cat falling, even with no rotational movement at the beginning of the decline, would gain momentum while in free fall. He even published these photos, along with his research, in a volume of Comptes Rendus in 1894.

Ultimately, this brave and likely unsuspecting scientist didn't know his little experiment actually contributed to the space exploration, even though  it took over 50 years for NASA's researchers, T.R. Kane and M.P. Scher, to publish their findings in a paper titled "A Dynamical Explanation of the Falling Cat Phenomenon."

Canadian Photographer Captures Stunning Pics Of Polar Bears Frolicking in a Meadow

These images were taken in 2015, by Canadian photographer Dennis Fast, they have seen gone viral after appearing in Modern Met Magazine and you're about to see why!

Stunning images of polar bears frolicking in a vibrant pink field of fireweed. Seriously, what can top that? the striking contrast of the white polar bear against a sea of pink flowers.

The photos were taken in Northern Canada's Hudson Bay, near lodges run by Churchill Wild in Manitoba. Fast tells My Modern Met, "It's not just their color that makes them a favorite target of my camera. They have a slow, ambling gait as they drift about looking for anything that moves. It looks like they don't have a care in the world, and that there is nothing they are afraid off. It's not arrogance, exactly, but a quiet confidence that we often respect in humans and that translates well to the polar bear."

Photographer Captures Stunning Images Of The World's Only Known Pink Manta Ray

Off the coast of Australia, near Lady Elliot Island, the world's only known pink manta ray has once again been spotted! 

Nicknamed "Inspector Clouseau," after the the main character of the classic "The Pink Panther," was photographed by Kristian Laine

According to Laine, she was original confused when seeing the pink manta, believing the ray's vibrant hue was due to a camera malfunction. Laine told Australian Geographic, "I was in the middle of a manta train with seven other mantas. I was looking through my viewfinder and was thinking it's weird that one of the mantas looks pink. I actually thought my strobes were playing up, making the manta look pink."

When she returned to land, Laine discovered that the sighting was authentic, and later took to Instagram to share photos of the "amazing and absolutely unforgettable encounter."

The last, and first, time the rare manta ray was spotted was in 2015, by diving instructor Ryan Jeffery off Lady Elliot Island (once again). 

The pink coloring on this manta ray remains a mystery. Project Manta's Asia Armstrong said, "The working theory is that it is just a different and very unique expression of the melanin, but that is still to be confirmed."
