I only spotted these gargoyle-esque figures on
a building on Flinders Lane for the first time
on Friday (I think it was Ross House)
While I was getting my hair coloured at the salon today I read an article in Slate called Amazing Animals You Never Knew Existed.
The photos in the article are from Ross Piper's book Animal Earth: The Amazing Diversity of Living Forms. The pictures are great, but the thing that amazed me most was this:
Humans have cataloged as many as 1.5 million species of animals, and Piper said there may be as many as 200 million more species still undiscovered. “We know a great deal more about the surfaces of barren moons in space than we do about our own planet..."
As many as 200 million! Not big mammals wandering about the plains and forests obviously, but still... I find that mind blowing.
I had delicious smashed avocado on toast with feta, bacon and a poached egg for brunch today. Accompanied by far less din than last week's brunch, but we were sitting outside.
I wore my new boots. They're very comfortable - not even the merest hint of a pinch or rub.
