Autumn is the best time to see jays at their most active, whether that be flying between trees on feeding forays or on the ground feeding among the autumnal leaves! It's a great time to try and photograph them, or check out for more great photography! 🍂📷

The fiery hues of autumn aren't just reserved for the woodlands you know.

Fossils of the earliest relatives of modern-day seaweeds date back 1.6 billion years, and seaweeds play a crucial role on Earth. Kelp forests are important to coastlines - they break the flow of water, and prevent coastal erosion.
