compoundsThe smell of earth after rain

holymoleculesbatman:

is called Petrichor, and it is caused by Geosmin.

Geosmin is an organic compound with the formula C12H22O. It’s produced by several classes of microbes, including cyanobacteria (blue-green algae) and actinobacteria (especially Streptomyces), and released when these microbes die. The human nose is extremely sensitive to geosmin and is able to detect it at concentrations as low as 5 parts per trillion.

Beautiful in life, even more so in death.
Took this picture last summer(2010) in Colorado. Right outside of a friends Cabin.

Amen to that.

I don’t know about its death being more beautiful because elk are damn awesome, but this is certainly very elegant.

But it’s death of one creature, which feeds the life all around it. If you are what you eat, which you are, then the elk lives in the trees, the grass, the insects, the soil, the air, etc. It’s one big life-feast.
