The Iron Giant Collectible Figure The 16″ tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.
Harris Hawks (Parabuteo unicinctus) chase down a desert cottontail in the Sonoran Desert of Arizona, United States
Oh man this is bringing back wonderful memories for me.. I went to Ireland last year and had the privilege of going on a walk through a forest with one of these guys on my arm (my first ever experience with raptors up close and personal!!). She looked very similar to the bird pictured predominantly in these gifs. Harris hawks are astoundingly beautiful and graceful, I love it.
When most people think of an opal, they might think of a milky-colored stone containing a rainbow of stripes or flecks inside it. What many people don’t know is that they are incredibly diverse in appearance, and are not actually minerals. Opals are a solid, amorphous form of silica, and are classified as “mineraloids”. Like other mineraloids, such as amber, pearl, and obsidian, they lack structural order, or “crystallinity”.
From the top:
Cat’s Eye Opals
Peruvian Pink Opals
Yowah Nut and Koroit Opals (both have the same characteristics - they merely come from two different areas).
Ethiopian Honeycomb Opals
Green Opals (Serbian, Tanzanian, and Brazilian)
Peruvian Blue Opals
Landscape Opals (Andean and Australian)
Mexican Fire Opals
Australian Boulder Opals
Ethiopian Ribbon Opals
(Side note - the image backgrounds are transparent, except for the matrix/landscape picture, which seems hellbent on being an asshat, no matter how many times I try to fix it)
Going to pin this up here for reference for xej’s dragon
