路易斯岛 卡拉尼什


取材自有30亿年历史的岩石,卡拉尼什巨石环可能是在大金字塔完成前就已竖立好。人类从 5000年前就已经在这里定居,务农、渔猎及营建。外围的巨石大约3.5公尺高,中央的巨石则约4.5公尺高。这个直径13公尺的圆环跟远在南方的史前巨石柱群类似,都是方圆数公里内均看得到的重要仪式中心。

At a breeding facility in Indonesia, baby green tree pythons (Morelia viridis) cling to perches that substitute for branches in their native tropical forests. Seen here at about eight inches long, each snake will grow to several feet and will likely turn a shade of green—though a few retain their yellow hue or even change dramatically to colors such as sky blue. For snake collectors around the world, captive-bred animals offer a sustainable alternative to those taken from the wild.

圣基达群岛,波雷岛


一群群海鸟在天空翱翔,狭窄的岩脊上散布着许多鸟巢。波雷岛北端的海拔高度只有384公尺,但是经常笼罩在云雾里。世上最大的塘鹅群在这里和附近的孤丘上繁殖,大约有6万对左右。以前圣基达岛民为了维持在这个偏远地方的生活,会赤脚攀爬这些危崖,抓取鸟和鸟蛋。

路易斯岛,曼格斯塔


在外赫布里群岛,这些扭曲皱褶、棱角分明的孤丘和悬崖跟现有的陆块一样古老,令人想起 6000万年前北大西洋开始扩张时,把欧洲北美洲和格陵兰分裂开来的巨大力量。

Arrayed in battle formation, rows of life-size terra cotta soldiers form an advance guard facing east, the direction from which future enemies—conquered states, most likely—would attack. Qin Shi Huang Di, China's first emperor, was right to be worried about what might happen after he died. His unified state disintegrated, and rebels defaced his replica army, making off with bronze swords and other weapons many of the figures carried.

夜幕低垂之际,一只壮丽双辐海葵收缩起来,看起来宛如一只赤陶罐。它的触手多到足以暴露在外,保护其居民海葵双锯鱼,让它们潜伏其间寻求安全的庇护。海葵双锯鱼能长到大约7公分长。这种海葵的体色多样,从橘色到粉红、蓝色、绿色、红色或白色都有。

A curtain of mist and some 2,000 years separate the modern-day islanders whose homes cluster nearby from the Iron Age builders of the Dun Carloway broch on Lewis. Nearly 50 feet across, the remains of the double-walled, drystone fort stand almost 30 feet high. Scholars believe that the prestige of living in these commanding structures may have been as important to the families that built them as the physical security they offered.
