The apple-stars have gently dropped to earth
And settled in the trees, stars you can taste
Which shine on tongues in the night-time of the mouth;
As he and she make love there is
A fresh apple-smell on their breath
Which grows an orchard in their house through which they walk
As one and freely pluck and eat the starry juices.
Jellyfish Lake in Palau. Apparently the jellies have lost their ability to sting because of lack of predators in the lake and you can swim with them!
WAIT BUT THAT’S NOT EVEN THE COOLEST PART: These jellyfish carry small populations of algae inside their bodies and derive much of their nutrition from the sugars that the algae produce. The jellyfish follow the sun across the lake each day and rotate continuously, so that the algae are always getting maximum sunlight exposure for photosynthesis. Then at night they dive to deeper parts of the lake so the algae can absorb nitrogen. It’s one of the best examples of endosymbiosis in action and it’s KICKASS.
