These wonderfully detailed scientific paintings are pretty amazing. They come from a time when, instead of documenting the natural world with photographs, scientists made detailed drawings and paintings. Ernst Haeckel was one such scientist/artist. Here is a collection of some of his art.
Here’s a photograph of the artist:
This is an interesting collection of realistic and fantastic art that portrays a turtle carrying an ecosystem on his back. Reminds us that we are all in this together.
Wow! Amazing images captured by a storm chaser.
I can’t get enough of Andy Kehoe’s art! I have been on an image binge for hours now, and these are the new (to me) ones that I found. There are two other Andy Kehoe posts here at More Cool Pictures, so, if you want to binge right along with me, here’s a link: Kehoe Art
Here is a great collection of some amazing and beautiful photographs o natural scenes reflected on clear water.
Italian photographer Elido Turco spent four years between 2004 and 2008 exploring a mirrored photography world that remains invisible to most of us. By taking photographs of tree bark and then mirroring the photographs he captured, he discovered a whole society of “Dream Creatures” were watching him each time he would take a stroll through the mountain paths.
Turco loves walking the mountain paths of his native Friuli with his wife, and for years he would use this time to try and find human forms and faces formed by the bark and roots of the trees in the forest.
The catches, he admits, were few and far between until, one day, curiosity got the best of him and he decided to mirror an image on his computer. What he discovered was “a world of… fantastic creatures” the he had never realized existed.
Jackals and Vultures survive on carrion, and sometimes come into savage competition for a meal. Sharp talons and ferocious beaks versus strong jaws and pointy teeth, the battles can be vicious, violent confrontations.
The carcass was put out for the vultures so that visitors to the Giants Castle Nature Reserve could view them closer, but the vultures were far too late by the time they arrived as the jackals had already claimed it. And it looks like the Jackals won this round.
Not all the fighting looks this simple and tidy. More often, a huge crowd shows up to claim the carrion, and it’s loud, rowdy, and dusty, as you can see from the following photos.
When it’s one on one, the Jackal and Vulture seem to be evenly matched in size, savagery, and vicious determination.
But, with vultures, there’s never just the one!
Sometimes, even with reinforcements, the Vultures win the meal.
But there are days when a Jackal gets the upper hand.
