Many thanks to @MikeatPrinceton for sending me this tumblr page, that will guide you to “Art of Science”, a  exhibition site from Princeton University that explores the interplay between science and art, exactly the same philosophy who inspire this very blog. So I picked out some nice pictures from the 2013 gallery for this post, precisely these (from top to bottom and left to right):

- Light eddies

- Bridging the gap

- The history of gliding

- Electron turnstile

- Worm water slide

- Conducting path

Blossoming flame

- Hoodoos

- Tropical sunset

Just a reminder:the natural diet of these birds is BONES. Not just bone marrow; actual bone shards. They pick up huge freaking bones from carcasses and drop them onto rocks until they get spiky pieces and then they swallow them. Their stomach acid dissolves bone.

look me in the eye and tell me that’s not a fucking dragon

And they aren’t naturally red like that. That’s self-applied makeup. They find the reddest earth they can to work into their feathers as a status symbol.

And they don’t scavenge other parts of carcases, just the bones. 85-90% of their diet is exclusively bone. Hence why it’s only a myth that these birds would just pick up whole lambs and carry them off. It’s not true, but in German they’re still called Lämmergeier as a result.
