Autumn, you either hate it or love it. It means the end of the summer, but it’s also the beginning of an amazingly beautiful color palette. The colors of the deciduous trees start shifting color from green to yellows, oranges, bright red, and earthy tones. Some plants start blooming, others grow their fruits and seedpods. Not to mention the broad variety of mushrooms that start to pop out of every nook and cranny. All and all, autumn is the season of abundance. Animals can now stock up for the harsh winter to come. And artists get out of their hidey holes for a seasonal color study
Bio-luminescence is a magically beautiful phenomenon that’s for many people a rarity to see. Bio-luminescence is an emission of light from an organism, that emits this light for its survival and/or reproduction. It’s a biochemical mechanism that involves a chemical process, resulting in a cold light. Instead of it creating heat, the reaction will create light instead.
Although bio-luminescence is rarely seen, it’s fairly common. Both on land and in the ocean. However, these events take place around specific times of the year, making it hard to actually seek them out. Also, a lot of bio-luminescent organisms have a relatively faint light. This means they can only be seen at night when no flashlights are used, or light pollution is nearby. Nonetheless, it’s an absolutely wonderful phenomenon and worth it to seek out when you have the chance!
