Magical pond that changes color with the weather
Kent Shiraishi took these photos of the Blue Pond, a beautiful body of water in Hokkaido, Japan. Blue Pond receives so much attention because of its shimmering blue hue, which changes into a lovely green in certain light. This pond owes its colors to aluminium hydroxide, a mineral which reflects blue light.
Dilation and constriction of these organelles, called chromatophores, are responsible for the squid’s ability to change color.

Every day we must fight procrastination and negativity. Focus on what you want to attain, not what you want to avoid.
