After leaving the War Memorial as seen in yesterday's post, I walked nearby. Plaza Bridge crosses the Rideau Canal here, and during the summers large displays are erected at this spot with various themes. This year it's all about science.
I focused in on each in turn, with panels beneath offering details. I hope they're readable. These crustaceans spend the winter beneath the ice.
The paw of a mouse embryo.
Two bears at play- my favourite of these panels.
A lobster in the pre-larval stage.
This image shows some of the building blocks of DNA.
An octopus- two thousand metres down in the ocean.
A microscopic image of neurons.
Honeycomb patterns exist everywhere in nature. These are fruit fly ovaries.
Wasp eggs, often laid in the seed of trees.
Two toads caught in flagrante delicto. The male neotropical yellow toad turns yellow for a few hours once a year for mating before going back to its usual look. Guys, you try that.
More of this tomorrow.
