Demilked.com has posted some wonderful new hybrid creatures born of the wonders of Photoshop. There may never be an opportunity to sight these animals in the Wild, but it’s best to know their names, just in case.
Behold the Butterphant!
And the Koaowl!
And the Orangupanda!
For further education on a few more important (and imaginary) species, refer to Demilked.

Every year on November 1st, the people of Sumpango, Guatemala celebrate the Day of the Dead with an All Saints Day Kite Festival.
But not with ordinary kites.
With HUGE, GIGANTIC, ENORMOUS ones made of rice, bamboo, and woven textiles, measuring up to SEVENTY FEET in diameter!

Most of the kites display messages regarding caring for the environment and women’s rights, and attached to the tails are messages to departed loved ones. It takes more than 20 people to propel each one into the sky.

Sumpango’s All Saints Day Kite Festival is a tradition that can be traced back to ancient Mayan culture. Kite-flying has been a joy for centuries!

In the French city of Lyon exists a marvelous, miniature world. Dan Ohlmann is no Gulliver, but he has founded the Musée Miniature & Cinéma, where Lilliputians would feel right at home. Here’s Dan, lording over a tiny and eerily exact natural history museum he’s created.
This is the recreation of the Grand Salon aboard the SS Normandie, a grand ocean liner of yore.
And here’s a library so realistic, it makes you think you could walk right in. Maybe your hand would fit here, but that’s about all!
Miniatures are frequently used to help create movie magic. It’s clear to see why!

Scottish illustrator Johanna Basford creates coloring books that take a little more time and effort to keep the color inside the lines. Complicated and beautiful, her coloring-book drawings include a special ingredient.
Just look at these images from The Enchanted Forest, and you’ll have to agree!
Now get a copy of The Enchanted Forest for yourself, and break out the color pencils!

Living with a tree sounds swell to me. They’re always good company. And great listeners!
