For the Love of Lichen - YouTube
"In his home in rural Montana, photographer and biologist Tim Wheeler ( ) has lined the walls of his living room with shelf after shelf of lichen specimens. He has gathered these samples from his journeys and he meticulous curates his collection, finding only the most photogenic or unique specimens to profile. Using stacked macro photography, his portraits of lichen transform these dull and ubiquitous organisms into marvels of evolution and vibrant landscapes."

Hear the Otherworldly Sounds of Skating on Thin Ice | National Geographic - YouTube
"This small lake outside Stockholm, Sweden, emits otherworldly sounds as Mårten Ajne skates over its precariously thin, black ice. “Wild ice skating,” or “Nordic skating,” is both an art and a science. A skater seeks out the thinnest, most pristine black ice possible—both for its smoothness, and for its high-pitched, laser-like sounds".

Dichotomistic logic - do spiders have a mind
Looking like a crusty flake of bark on the branch, Portia labiata, a thumbnail-sized jumping spider, stops to have a think. Portia is a spider that hunts other spiders – a risky business at the best of times. Luckily Portia has brains. In fact it is the veritable Einstein of the arthropod world.
