When Marina Scarr first photographed this handsome Great Horned Owl in Fort De Soto Park, Florida, she thought the noble bird was alone. It wasn’t until she looked at her photo again later on that she noticed the owl was a proud parent caring for an owlet tucked into its feathered breast. The baby raptor blends in so perfectly, it’s practically invisible. That’s got to be one of the safest, softest places on earth. It’s a pretty awesome shot.
It’s a brand new week, which means it’s about time for a new crazy photo meme from Japan. This time those crazy kids, inspired by a new anime series based on the manga Attack on Titan, are playing with the age-old trick of forced perspective and staging awesome photos in which one giant student is grabbing or about to devour their classmates.
The show seems to have captured the imagination of Japan’s youth. Since late April, photos of “Pretend Attack on Titan” (進撃の巨人ごっこ or Shingeki no Kyojin gokko) have been popping up online. Using perspective tricks, this photo trend usually depicts teens pretending to hold or even eat other kids. There are also photos of teens “attacking” giant classmates. Over the past few days, the number of pics has really begun to take off.”
So, with all of these fantastic photo memes to play with, when do these students have time for class?

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. two narwhals engaged in an epic battle. It was the beginning of the Nar Wars.

Entitled Sir Grumpsalot, this stained glass piece is part of an upcoming group exhibition taking place at the Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment center in Huntsville, Alabama. The Grumpy Cat Art Project is exactly as wonderful as it sounds - it’s all artwork inspired by “The internet’s grumpiest cat.” (Who isn’t actually grumpy at all.)
There will be an online auction on the Lowe Mill website beginning on Monday, May 27, 2013 and end at 9 PM on May 31st. All proceeds from the auction will go to the contributing artists and to constructing a children’s playground at Lowe Mill. After the online auction ends, there will be a public art reception at Lowe Mill ARTS & Entertainment center on May 31st from 6 PM to 9 PM.
People in Poland have figured out an amazing way to reduce their carbon footprints. They’re getting invisible pets. It’s much easier on the environment and there’s no stray fur stuck to their furniture or clothes. (At least not that anyone can see.)
Okay, maybe not. These photos are actually part of an awesome series by Weronika Krzemieniecka, an illustrator and graphic design student based in the city of Łódź in central Poland. Entitled Invisible dogs in Poland, the photos appear to be unassuming street shots of everyday people out walking their dogs. That is until you notice that, thanks to Weronika’s playful digital artistry, those dogs are completely invisible, with the noteworthy exception of their mysteriously cast shadows on the ground.
