Guess The Theme 22

Good morning one and all!  I'm not going to waffle on much today as I'm running a bit behind on my jobs this morning. The answer to last week's Guess The Theme was... Captain Planet!  There was (not in order) Captain, Planet, Gaia, Earth, Wind, Fire, Water and Heart.  Gooooooo Planet!  Today we're moving away from entertainment and into science and nature.  I don't think this one's too hard, so if you have a guess you'd like to share, you can leave it as a comment here, on facebook or on twitter (@cutekidsclocks).  And while you're at it, why not pop over to the Buy Handmade British facebook page and click 'like'...  it could definitely do with a few more likes. I'm  particularly rubbish at promoting my facebook page.
