This Bald Eagle was chasing the Great Blue Heron away from the eggs in her nest. It wasn’t trying to kill the Heron or she would have done so long before this once in a lifetime shot was captured by Owen Deutsch
The artist in me loves the fact that we have two nearly similarly sized birds in the same pose for a detailed comparison between the anatomical differences. It’s like, I’m having an art boner right now.
There should be trails of coloured smoke…
How I spent my time at Pompeii today
if this isnt the face of “are you fucking kidding me?” idk what is
I was going to make a point about the subtle symbolism of handing one’s lightsaber to another person, and how it could be a nod to romance between characters…but then I went to get the scene where Anakin hands the lightsaber over to Padme and found that the series hits that point over the head with a very big hammer.
To my memory, these are the only times that a character voluntarily hands their own lightsaber over to another person (Anakin and Obi-Wan store theirs in Artoo, but that’s different). And each scene has a subtle touch to it:
—Padme comments that Anakin’s “life” is heavier than she was expecting; I don’t think that one needs any explanation.
—Ahsoka gives Barriss her “life” as the two of them are about to die underground, and when they hold hands and wait for the end, Barriss leaves on the lightsaber she was given, and not her own: they’re both sharing one life then.
—Asajj gives her “life” to Obi-Wan: the life of pain and suffering and hatred and darkness, all symbolized by a red lightsaber. But she says “I want that back.” She’s not going to let Obi-Wan solve her problems for her, she’s going to take it back for herself, she’s still an independent woman, even if she’s sharing a piece of her soul with someone else (Obi-Wan cheerfully replies that red isn’t his color: he’s not going to stay with the Dark Side).
TLDR: There is a lot of good, subtle material in this show.
i want a show called Man Vs. Wilde where someone is put in the jungle with oscar wilde and has to survive not only the elements but also wilde’s random attacks and massive ego
Mann vs. Wilde.
Thomas Mann’s pretensiousness and sexual repression vs. Oscar Wilde’s sarcasm and blatant queerness.
Give it to me.
Miley: “Dad I have something for Tanners bug collection”
my uncle: “that’s great”
Miley: “it’s a bird”
my uncle: “no its not”
They let it go and it flew away just fine, so we’re wondering how she caught it.
she caught another bird.

She is gonna rule the world one day with this power
