Tamara Staples is the photographer behind these peculiar portraits of spectacular chickens. She first encountered the regal looking birds when attending a poultry show.
After being blown away by the thousands of different varieties of chickens, she decided to start a portrait series that’s now been compiled as a book.
The Hawaiian Bobtail Squid, Euprymna scolopes, has a clever way of duping predators during its nightly activities. It uses a symbiotic luminescent bacteria, Vibrio fischeri, to light up its underside, so that upwards-looking predators don’t see a dark, edible form silhouetted against a moonlit or starlit sky. Instead, hungry sharks or other fish see only sky. The squid is invisible. This little magnificent beast helps us understand how our own bacteria symbiosis works. Kudos to you, beautiful squid!

Stranger Visions is an art project which tries to determine what we look like based on a single strand of hair.
How much information about ourselves do we leave behind in public, as we shed saliva, hair, and sweat throughout the day?
