Welcome Image Awards 2012: Isn’t this moth beautiful?

Definitely worth taking a look. The one below is my favourite.

“This false-coloured scanning electron micrograph shows a moth fly (Psychodidae), also known as a drain fly. As its name suggests, the fly’s larvae commonly live and grow in domestic drains; the adult fly emerges near sinks, baths and lavatories. The moth flies’ bodies and wings are covered in hairs, which gives them a ‘fuzzy’, moth-like appearance. The fly is 4-5 mm long, and each eye is approximately 100 microns wide.”

Coral Reef Deck for Phylomon Project now available as a free pdf download.

Sponsored by the fine folks over at the World Science Festival, I must say that this deck looks awesome! Go here for details on the deck (with links to the printable deck pdf), and also keep an eye out for the print-version Beaty Museum Deck which should soon be coming out in the next few months.

(And, if you’re in Vancouver, come out to a Phylo art exhibit and “learn to play” event at the HIVEfacebook page).

For now, check out some of the art for the Coral Deck cards below:
