This is the rare cardinal photographed in Dr. Larry Ammann’s back yard. It is a bilateral gynandromorph, which means it exhibits both male and female characteristics, split down the middle of its body. See additional images, that better show the split.

    The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (DutchKoninklijke Serres van LakenFrenchSerres Royales de Laeken), are a vast complex of monumental heated greenhouses in the park of the Royal Palace of Laeken in the north of Brussels. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the city.

    The complex was commissioned by King Leopold II and designed by Alphonse Balat. Built between 1874 and 1895, the complex was finished with the completion of the so-called “Iron Church”, a domed greenhouse that would originally serve as the royal chapel. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). 800,000 liters (over 200,000 US gallons) of fuel oil are needed each year to heat the buildings.

    The complex can only be visited during a two-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom.

    The Pixel Painter

    Meet Hal Lasko, 97 year old retired graphic designer, who spends his days making art on MS Paint. Pixelites … prepare to have your heart’s melt … video embedded below:

    Hal Lasko, better known as Grandpa, worked as a graphic artist back when everything was done by hand. His family introduced him to the computer and Microsoft Paint long after he retired.

    Now, Grandpa spends ten hours a day moving pixels around his computer paintings. His work is a blend of pointillism and 8-Bit art.

    Hal also has a website where you can see more of his works, which you can find here

    Reblogging this today as today would have been his 99th birthday (he sadly died in July the 6th this year). He even had a Tumblr blog, hallasko.

    RIP Hal Lasko
