It was one more morning searching trilobite fossils at Moroccan Anti -Atlas Mountains. I decided to give a try to thermal camera app.

As telescopes, microscopes and other tool shows, the reality is not just what our eyes evolved to see.

This is August, one of the hottest months of Mediterranean latitudes. It's amazing how the outside tree cup reacts immediately to the first rays of the Sun and heats evenly. These trees (Acacia raddiana) lose foliage during the summer to prevent water loss. This Summer dormancy is called aestivation.
