Tube Anemone, Bali

Photograph by Tara Noble Singh

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature

This large tube anemone, photographed in Tulamben, Bali, stood high off the black-sand bottom, allowing me to shoot its spectacular tentacles from below and capture its graceful movement. The flashlight highlighted the anemone’s dazzling luminance, while the setting sun added a sense of atmosphere.

This photo and caption were submitted to the 2008 International Photo Contest.

这只巨大的管海葵拍摄自巴厘岛Tulamben,它高高地呆在黑沙底座上,允许我仰拍它那壮观的触手,用镜头捕捉它那优美的动作。闪光灯增强了海葵令人眼花缭乱的亮度,夕阳则增加了一些气氛。

Lightning at Huntington Beach, Ohio

Photograph by James Larkin

This Month in Photo of the Day: Nature

While at Huntington Beach in Bay Village, Ohio, I saw a storm approaching fast out of the north. I got lucky and was in the right place at the right time. Within a minute of this shot, the storm unleashed its fury on the beach. It was a great day.

我在俄亥州海湾村亨廷顿海滩时,目睹了一场风暴从北面快速接近。幸运的是,我在正确的时间呆在了正确的地方。在拍摄这张照片的一分钟里,风暴平息了对海滩的愤怒。真是个大日子。

Fattened and then abandoned by mothers who leave to mate anew, weaned elephant seal pups stick close together until ready for a first season at sea.

本月每日一图的主题是:国家地理杂志专题

母象海豹把幼崽喂肥便抛下它们,去进行再次交配。两只刚断奶的小象海豹紧紧靠在一起,直到它们为海洋生活做好准备。

 

译注:

elephant seal是指象海豹(Mirounga),walrus才是海象(Odobenus);象海豹属于海豹科(Phocidae),海象属于海象科(Odobenidae);象海豹也作sea elephant,海象也作sea horse。

今天图片里的应该是海象,但文字描述与3月10日的相同,应该与图无关。

修正3月10日3月23日翻译中的错误。

Whirling atop a café overlooking Naama Bay’s pedestrian boulevard in Egypt, a tambourine-shaking Sufi dancer seeks to approach the divine—and attract diners. Despite the threat of terrorist attacks, Sinai’s open arms and modern aspirations will persist, as long as the tourists keep coming.

埃及纳马湾一个能俯瞰海湾人行道的餐馆屋顶上,一位摇着手鼓的苏菲舞者寻求用旋转的舞步来接近神明——同时吸引食客的注意。尽管受到恐怖袭击的威胁,西奈半岛仍然对远道而来游客保持其开放的怀抱和对现代化的渴望。

This Month in Photo of the Day: National Geographic Magazine Features

Morning draws a moose cow and calf into the shallows of Mayfield Lake in British Columbia. With a rich array of species, including several types of large mammals, the M-K offers a unique window on wildlife. Few roads open into the region, limiting human access—but not animal behavior, says Kathy Parker, a professor of wildlife ecology at the University of Northern British Columbia. A relatively intact landscape has helped keep ecosystems intact and let animals retain flexibility in what they eat and how they migrate. "Animals in the M-K still have a lot of options," Parker says. "It allows animals to use more than one strategy to make a living, which may be important for long-term survival and reproduction."

驼鹿母子,Mayfield湖

本月每日一图的主题是:国家地理杂志专题

晨光把一对驼鹿母子带入不列颠哥伦比亚省Mayfield湖的浅滩。拥有包括多种大型哺乳动物在内的丰富物种,Mayfield湖为人们提供一个独一无二的观察野生动植物的途径。北不列颠哥伦比亚大学的野生动植物生态学教授Kathy Parker说,为了限制人类进入,几乎没有路修到这里——但这不会影响动物活动。一个相对原始的环境有助于保存原有生态系统,也能让动物保持对食物和迁徙的适应。“Mayfield湖区的动物依然有很多选择的自由,”Parker说,“动物们都有不止一种的生存方式,这对于长期生存繁衍是非常重要的。”
