German photographer Henning Rogge has been taking photos of the scars left behind by bombs of WWII, scattered across German forests. It’s interesting to see the different ways in which varying landscapes & ecosystems have healed.  The photos are part of a show at RH Contemporary Art in NYC until September 13.

Makoto Azuma, a Japanese botanic artist, has created a series called Exbiotanica in which he sends flora into the stratosphere.  In this case a 50 year old pine and a floral arrangement were sent up via giant balloon.

Mudskipper is a fish which spend more time on land than in water. In fact, a mudskipper will drown if it’s never able to reach the water’s surface! Like other fish, mudskippers breathe through gills, but in addition they absorb oxygen through their skin and the linings of their mouths and throats. They are able to move over land by using their pectoral fins to pull themselves forward, or they perform a series of skips or jumps. Pokemon “Mudkip” is based on this fish.

I’m so in love with these giant moths!  I’d love to just perch one on my bed among the pillows, or hang a couple on a wall.  Made by Yumi Okita, you can purchase them on Etsy.
