photos of butterfly and moth wings taken by linden gledhil at seven to ten times life size.
"evolution is written on the wings of butterflies" - charles darwin

Seeing the microscopic wonder that is a butterfly’s wing always makes me think of Vladimir Nabokov, author and lepidopterist (and not necessarily in that order).
You’ll want to check out Nabokov’s butterfly sketches, whimsical fantasy species presented as gifts to his wife. And don’t miss his gorgeous butterfly-inspired poem, “On Discovering a Butterfly”.
Finally, don’t miss this great video from Smarter Every Day in which Destin goes full microscope on some butterfly scales. Beautiful stuff:

Since I basically disappeared in December, I thought I’d upload a ton of stuff to make up for my absence!  After working on what has now become The Daily Planet Files since May of 2013, I’m finally happy with the designs and what this has developed into. Who know what surprises 2014 holds for these guys;)…
I’d  like to wish my super cool followers a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!

I hope this gets to be an official comic.

Sculptures by Yoshimasa Tsuchiya

Japanese artist Yoshimasa Tsuchiya makes the most whimsical sculptures. Wooden foals, unicorns, mermaids - soft, delicate and detailed - look almost like porcelain. These beautiful creatures warm the heart and fire the imagination. "In Japan, most of traditional buildings and sculptures are made of wood. Wood is a material which breath. It has own age, own viability. I studied these kind of traditional techniques in a graduate school of operative dentistry of cultural assets. I receive some inspirations from an old tale, a myth, a legend and my dream. The figure of my animals is a materialization of human hope, mind and heart."
