A labrador wants to take a nap in the middle of a crowded and noisy boulevard.

The dog in the video tries to take a nap at broad daylight in the middle of a boulevard. It doesn’t seem he is sleeping deeply. Is it because of all the noise? Probably……. Do you know how much dogs sleep? When you own a dog for the first time you would be surprised how much time it spends sleeping. Here are some facts: It seems that larger dogs sleep more than smaller ones, because they need more energy to be active and therefore they tire quicker. Puppies sleep more than older dogs because they are more playful and use a lot of energy to grow up. Sometimes they sleep 20 hours a day! Older dogs also sleep more than younger ones. The average time of sleeping is around 12 -14 hours a day. Dogs snooze much less deeply than humans, so they wake up easily, but that’s also the reason why they need some more sleep.

Time lapse captures longest blood moon eclipse of the century

On Friday, July 27th (2018) millions of people had the opportunity to see an event known as a “blood moon”. It was the longest lunar eclipse in this century, visible for most of the world. Only Greenland and North America couldn't watch it. It is called a ‘blood moon” because of the red/ orange color that occurs when the full moon moves into the shadow of the earth cast by the sun. In this video you can see the different stages of the eclipse, mostly in time lapse. Video and music by Ben(Benfilm)

Ants fight with wasps over deceased grasshopper47s

Ants fight with wasps over deceased grasshopper

A grasshopper is dead and the ants want to transport the meal to their nest. Many ants are busy to dissect the grasshopper. The wasps arrive a little later trying to get some pieces of the grasshopper too, but the ants are not very pleased with their presence. They attack the wasps and try to chase them away. After some attacks the wasps leave the prey and the ants go on with dissecting the grasshopper. This nature scenery took place in the summer on the island Lefkas in Greece. Some shots are in real time and others in slow-motion. Hope you enjoy this battle between the ants and the wasps!

Wonderful close-up of a great tit eating a larva

Wonderful to watch this close-up of a great tit who is searching for food and find a larva in the ground. He holds the cocoon of the larva between his claws and uses his beak to get the larva out of the cocoon. The Great Tit is one of the most common breeding birds in the Netherlands, but also throughout Europe, Central and Northern Asia and the Middle East. In the Netherlands we call him a 'Koolmees'. He is well known and also the largest titmouse of our country. He has a black head and neck with prominent white cheeks, yellow underpart and olive upperparts. He is usually nesting in a hole in a tree. She lays around twelve eggs. Both parents raise the chicks. But the mother incubates the eggs alone. Enemies of the great tit are squirrels, weasels and woodpeckers who may be raided the nests. A severe winter can occur great mortality too.
