Took some photos in Norway/Svalbard and Sweden. Full album on my flickr profile, but the photospheres get posted here (until flickr supports them...)

If only all bugs were so well-behaved...
 
The photographs in this picture gallery may look like they been Photoshopped or assembled with dead insects, but the ants in these images are very much alive. Russian photographer Andrey Pavlov spends hours setting up fairytale scenes. He studied ants, and saw that they all follow a very specific path when they’re working. So he put his props on their trail, and photographed the insects interacting with his miniature 'stage sets'.

Pictures: ANDREY PAVLOV / CATERS NEWS

Found on telegraph.co.uk
(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturepicturegalleries/9128153/The-fantasy-world-of-ants-photographs-by-Andrey-Pavlov.html)


Here are some statements taken from an interview with dailymail.co.uk

Mr Pavlov shot the images at an anthill just metres from his home in Moscow, Russia.

The snapper explained: 'For the last seven years I have always had my camera with me, but it was only when I had children and started reading them fairytales that I realised it was something I never did as a child.

That's when I decided to make up for it and start creating some fairytales of my own.

I used to work in theatre which was a big help when it came to making props, and I chose ants because I respect them and their way of life.

They care about their children and look after the elderly. They have lived for millions of years.

I take my inspiration from humans but luckily for me ants are quite inquisitive, which seems to make them very willing participants.

Ok. That's pretty fun. I could totally see hours of my life disappearing while making ants do humorous things. :P

Just did a quick and dirty social network visualization of characters in Tolkien's Silmarillion. I haven't read it in a long time, and I don't think I ever finished it, so the character list I used came straight from wikipedia (and thus suffered from a lack of common aliases and nicknames). I used the same technique I used last year for the LOTR trilogy, explained here: http://cct.im/2w -- Let me know if you want my data...

Oh, look. I'm gone for a week and when I come back, g+ games have arrived to ruin the user experience. Well, this was fun.

Not having been on Facebook for over two years, I don't know/remember if they let you export all your data. Do they? Because I just noticed that option here, and it made me scratch my head and go "but... but... that's not ...evil..."

Just uploaded some videos with the latest newcomers to our little flock, Carlotta and Ophelia.

Google doesn't like to parse youtube playlist links, apparently, and it only grabbed the first video. Here's the full set:

Would you like a new friend?

A friend of mine's housemate is moving and can't take her cat with her. "Kitty" is a four-year-old male who's been neutered and had all his shots. I'm told he's going to the pound if a home isn't found for him soon... If you're interested, let me know and I'll put you in touch.

You should definitely try posting a picture here. I think I've already found him a human.

So apparently DC is the hottest place in the country right now. I didn't move north for this.
