MOST RECENT

Today's drawing is Gastornis gigantea! This is a large species of Gastornithid bird which lived during the Eocene (about 45 million years ago) in what is now North America. Once believed to be a predator, it is now more widely accepted to be a herbivore.
This bird is most famously depicted hunting small mammals such as the early horse Eohippus. While some later terror birds were clearly carnivorous, it is quite clear Gastornis was primarily herbivorous. The shape of its bill, in that it lacks the characteristic hook on the tip nearly all predatory birds have, and it lacked sharp talons on its toes which later terror birds would have. While it is likely Gastornis ate some sort of meat for protein, it may have actually preferred to eat large seeds and fruits. Its beak was able to handle extreme force, and the depth of the skull made it quite strong, meaning it could have used its bill as a sort of nutcracker.
While this bird may superficially resemble true terror birds (phorusrhacids), the two are actually unrelated. One of the oldest described fossil birds (described in 1855 on a fragmentary skeleton), this bird has received some of the largest changes throughout time in terms of reconstructions. Once thought to have ratite-like plumage, like the feathers of an emu, suspected feathers discovered have been discovered showing they were broad and veined (however these feathers can't be described to Gastornis as they were discovered isolated from any skeletal remains - the only thing we know about them is their structure and that they came from a giant bird).

I feel a sweet humble pride combo to see Zoe, a livestreaming virtual aquarium of the sea, at home in a tropical fish and coral store in Michigan. Micro and macro versions of habitats for flowing, curving creatures and movements contained in luminescent blue viewing cubes in a city far from the ocean.
TONIGHT reception for all the artists at Watercolors Aquarium Gallery starts at 7PM. 11 SE Jefferson St. Grand Rapids. 👏🏽👏🏽👏🏽 @watercolorsaquarium for installing and inviting me to exhibit with them for #artprize10 .

A fancy photography system
.
This complex contraption consists of many different parts working in conjunction. There's a light source, the lamp on top, this is what we use to activate the genes we are manipulating. Next comes a filter to isolate the wavelengths of light that work to activate our genes the best.
.
Below that is a converging lens to concentrate the light a little better for our system. A little below that is a 35mm slide that contains the image we are trying to reproduce. After that you find another lens to focus the light inside our makeshift photo-incubator. Inside that incubator we do our best to minimize interference from other light sources by covering the inside of the incubator with black materials. Inside this incubator you find our petri dishes with transformed bacteria that should respond to our light source. That is, if everything went right. .
More on the actual science that makes all this work coming up. Do you have any ideas? What kind of images would you make with this system?

I liked this mixture of l glutamine and taurine I made up the other night so I thought I'd share. It reminds me of a narrow desert canyon, how about you?
Taurine is an acid containing an amino group but not a true amino acid. Often found in energy drinks, it serves many biological functions throughout the body including in the cardiovascular, muscular, and nervous systems.
L-glutamine (not to be confused with the neurotransmitter glutamate) is a non-essential amino acid used in protein synthesis. It is also the most abundant free amino acid in the blood stream. It becomes essential in times of illness or injury as the body needs to obtain more of it from food to effect repairs.

Big thanks to @artbeatstudios for the 4 foot by 2 foot aluminum print of my image L Glutamine and Beta Alanine #21. Will be hanging in @gimmecoffee on State Street throughout October along with a selection of other images.

En estás horas de la noche, en la sabana africana o al sur del Sáhara, podemos encontrar con el búho lechoso o bubo lacteus, o búho de verreaux, es el tercer búho más grande con 2 metros de envergadura y unos 70 de longitud y el más grande de África. Entre otros como roedores y todo lo que pille que sea más pequeño que él, se dedica a cazar lechuzas y de los únicos que caza puercoespines, que para ellos serán como pipas, un no parar. Son los únicos que tienen los párpados rosados, dos cuernos emplumados y su forma de ulular no es la común en los búhos hacen ruidos raros. Cuando son polluelos el hermano mayor se suele zampar al pequeño si no está avispado. Un bicharraco impresionante que no te gustaría que volase hacía ti en la nocturnidad. También podemos encontrarlo aquí en Valencia, en el biopark, donde tomé la foto de la ilustración.

Goliath beetles are among the largest insects on earth! Their legs and claws have quite the powerful grip. Sometimes they have red elytra, like this one, or they can have black and white markings.
