Festooning is a behavior where bees hold onto each other to create a scaffold while they build honeycombs.

Sketchbook page :) I copied this recipe from an Instructible, which in turn claimed to have been relayed by a Himalayan chai wallah. I love ‘chai lattes’ but have never found teabags or loose mixes particularly successful, so I decided to try to figure out how to make my own from scratch.
It turns out, there’s a lot of variation. “Masala chai” just means “spiced tea,” so it’s sort of up to personal interpretation, and it seems like every vendor and every family has a totally different recipe. The only real hard-and-fast requirements seem to be: Milk, black tea, some spices, and some sweetener.
As for this recipe? It just seemed like a decent starting point. I finally got hold of some cardamom pods and tried it, and… it turns out this is way more ginger than I would like :P There isn’t enough of the other ingredients to balance it out, so instead of a rich spicy flavor, I basically got hot milky tea with a side of mild burning in the back of the throat -____-;;
I’m going to keep experimenting: when I land on a combo I like, maybe I’ll doodle that recipe out, too ;D

I think this is necessary to post. I see a lot of people “saving” bunnies.
"*Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.
*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!
*Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk.
*To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned. If not, take the bunnies to a rehabilitator.
* A bunny that is bright eyed and 4-5 inches long is fully independent and does NOT need to be rescued!
*If you find a bunny that does need to be rescued, put it in a dark, quiet location. Bunnies are a prey species and while they may look calm, they are actually very, very scared!”
Never knew this, keeping this for reference
As a student of Veterinary Medicine I can completely confirm this! Do NOT take them out of their nest unless you’re 100% sure that the mother did not come back for them after at least one day!

Actually had some serious homework to do last night, which is why this one is a bit late.
