DID YOU KNOW....that Cuba is home the the smallest bird in the world? Measuring 5 cm long and 2 gm in weight, the Bee Hummingbird or el Zunzuncito, holds the record for the smallest bird and also the smallest egg in the world.

Bee hummingbirds are the smallest known living birds in the world - being comparable in size to bumble bees and are lighter than a Canadian or U.S. penny. Females are slightly larger than males.

Like all hummingbirds they can fly not only forwards but also backwards, up, down, and even just hover. They have the ability to beat their wings at up to 80 times per second, so fast that humans can only see the wings moving as a faint blur. Their tiny size and amazing flying skills allow them to move from flower to another collecting nectar and hunt even small insects. In fact, they are so good at flying (some as many as 1,500 flowers a day) that they do not even walk anymore and only use their feet for perching.

Many native and culti...

The island of Elliðaey (63° 28'05.10″ N, 20° 10'31.98″ W), the third largest island of the Westman Islands, located south of Iceland. The island is a mere 0.18 mi² in area and is uninhabited. From this website, we learn the following information (translation is mine, so it's imperfect but gives the gist):
"On the island is a large fishing house owned by the Ellidagrim Islands Society, which engages in puffin egg hunting in summer and in spring. In earlier times there was a hunting lodge called simply "dwelling." The first building which was built on the island still stands. It is used for storage, and is west of the 'Skápana.' In 1953, a new lodge was built at the foot of Hábarð (the highest peak on Elliðaey) because the old building failed the test of time. In 1985, work bega...

Imagine fields of bright purple and delicate mauve under a deep blue sky, take a deep breath and experience the true scent and colour of Provence.
The stunning sight of the Plateau de Sault or the Plateau de Valensole in mid July, the two main areas of lavender cultivation in our part of Provence, are reason enough alone to visit this beautiful part of France.

Lavender blooms from late June to August and is harvested from mid July to late August, the exact time being dependent on the region, the plants and the seasonal weather so if you want to be sure to catch the lavender in bloom you should plan your visit from mid June to mid July.

The marine animal in the picture may be described using a wide variety of adjectives: beautiful, strange, cute, and fantastic. It could also be called a science fiction monster, a Photoshop trick, a Mythical Pokémon, or some sort of avatar... you name it! It's a nudibranch commonly known as "blue dragon" or "sea swallow". It's a soft-bodied pelagic mollusk, a relative of snails and slugs. Its scientific name is Glaucus atlanticus. Blue dragons are small (about 4-5 cm), pelagic, they drift upside down on the surface of the ocean, they are hermaphrodites, and perhaps most importantly, they are highly poisonous.
Blue dragons feed on other pelagic sea creatures such as the venomous Physalia physalis, also known as the "Portuguese Man-Of-War". They eat the stinging, venom-filled tentacles of Physalia and concentrate the venom in the tip of the dark-blue finger-like branches at the end of its six appendages. This protects them from other marine pred...

Source : Brightside Our body is an incredibly complex machine that reacts not only to external changes but to internal ones too. Dr. Susan Babel, a psychologist who specializes in depression, suggested quite an interesting theory about our body signals. Bright Side would like to share some illustrations that demonstrate Babel's theory, as well as simple recommendations on how to cope with emotional problems. The psychologist considers discomfort and pain to be the signals of anxiety: secret fears, unresolved issues. Chronic pain is a symptom of stress and emotional problems, especially when there are no physical injuries. Head Too much stress is the main cause of any headache. It can happen because of worries about possible failures, little things, or constant rushing. Set aside some time for yourself every day. Let yourself relax, and don't worry about anything for some time. Just take some rest, and don't feel guilty about this. Your productivity will only be boosted thanks to this ...

Source : You may not have thought about Akon since his song 'Lonely' became an earworm a decade ago, but the musician has moved from conquering the charts to building what has been dubbed his very own ' Wakanda.'
Between setting up his own cryptocurrency AKoin and vowing to bring electricity to 600 million people in Africa, Akon has been quietly building his own 'futuristic' city in Senegal named after himself. He revealed last June that he was working on creating a " 100% crypto-based city" and more recently announced on Nick Cannon's radio show Power 106 Los Angeles that building is officially under way. The city has been named Akon City. While it sounds like something out of a supervillain's playbook, Akon plans for the city to be "renewable" with a focus on solar energy (a statement claims that his charity project Akon Lighting Africa has provided " scaled solar power solutions throughout 18 countries to date in Africa").
