Algae Monday: Te Waikoropupu Springs, New Zealand

National Geographic reports:

"Te Waikoropupu Springs are the largest freshwater springs in New Zealand and the largest cold-water springs in the Southern Hemisphere. According to Roggo, they contain some of the clearest water ever measured.
Roggo made this picture a few weeks ago by mounting his camera on a pole. He made no contact with the water, because touching it in any way is prohibited in order to protect water quality and cultural heritage."


  1. The Golden Pheasant is also known as The Chinese pheasant. Its wonderful golden colors have nevertheless given it the more common Golden Pheasant name. The bird is not only super beautiful in colors, but also looks nice! They are native to the western coast of China, but they are also bred in certain places. England is the largest breeder of the Golden Pheasant.

    When the male Golden Pheasant wants to attract his friends or a girlfriend, he shows his feathers. Then comes a beautiful orange cape that covers everything except his glittering yellow eyes. What a picture!
