Fire river in Kamchatka

Fire river in Kamchatka. These stunning pictures of a volcanic eruption and lava flow were taken by Russian photographers and traveling bloggers Lyudmila and Andrei. Tolbachik volcano is located in the Far East of Russia, in Kamchatka. ‘A little adventure during the very first night at Tolbachik’, Andrey writes. “For us who were at the volcano explosion site for the first time it was quite unnerving. We had been waiting for the dark to come at the site where a lava tube was coming out of the surface. It was a full moon and perhaps it does make a difference on how active the explosion was. Perhaps it was the same principle that works with the tide in the ocean”.

Yellow coral Tubastrea, or Sunny coral

Yellow coral Tubastrea, also known as sunny coral or sun polyps, belongs to the family of Dendrophylliidae. Sunny corals is a group of corals known as large-polyp stony corals. While they produce a hard skeleton, they do not build reefs. Different species have polyps in a variety of colors, the range of which includes from red to orange and yellow, and even unusual pink. Translucent tentacles of coral can be the same color as the thin tissues covering the colony itself, although sometimes they can be a little lighter, or even white. On the tentacles are numerous nematocysts that are responsible for the capture of nutrient particles. In fact, sunny corals are often found in deep waters, because they do not require sunlight for nourishment. Besides, they often colonize artificial surfaces, such as ship wrecks, for similar reasons. But Tubastrea is difficult to keep in aquarium, because they require daily feedings of zooplankton. In addition, they extend their colorful tentacles only at night, further reducing their appeal.
