Life lesson: If anyone is scared of you, lick them.
#okay but if legendaries are basically like gods this is like zeus coming down from mt. olympus and licking your face
if it was zeus he’d do a hell of a lot more than lick your face let’s be real
This is one of my favorite timelapses that I’ve ever made. It’s a Morpho butterfly wing that I applied Isopropanol to. The Isopropanol neutralizes the nano-structure photo-mechanism in the wing, turning it the color of the wing itself. When the alcohol dries, it turns back into its irradiant blue color. SOOO awesome!
One of the most amazing things about being a mammal is our sensitive hearing. Where does it come from? — These three little bones in our middle ear.
Our reptile ancestors only had one bone, but our two extra bones enable us to amplify sound.

Miniature Galaxies Created Through Tilt-Shift Technique
With the use of a relatively simple photography technique, Italian artist
Haari Tesla has reduced the cosmos to a microscopic level. Her series, Illuminated Code From Space, is experimentation in tilt-shift manipulation. By digitally adjusting the depth of field, contrast, and adding a gradient, Tesla has managed to transform photos of nebulae, galaxies, and supernovae into microorganisms. It’s incredible to look at these images and realize that they are actually photos of the largest place we know, rather than of something so small it can’t be seen with the naked eye.
The initial idea for the series came from the Greek Neo-Platonic schema of macrocosm and microcosm. Essentially, this is the recognition that the same traits appear in entities of many different sizes. Plato wrote about how we see these patterns reproduced in all levels, from the largest scale (macrocosm, or the universe) all the way down to a microscopic level (also know as microcosm),
They look like such delicate things that you keep in a high shelf.
