Tumbling in February

Jason de Caires Taylor's underwater sculptures create a unique, absorbing and expansive visual seascape.

We have picked out a few of our favorites from our Bulldog Pottery's February tumblr archive to show today.

The top image is by Jason de Caired Taylor. This is a detail of La Evolucion Silenciosa (The Silent Evolution), 400 life-size figures sunk into the water off of Cancun/Isla Mujeres, Mexico. To see more if his work, watch videos, and read about other projects he has completed , visit his website.

The above painting is by Martin Wittfooth. A fantastical mixture of nature, decay, and industrial imagery. Visit his website gallery to see more.

Zebra longwing butterfly egg from National Geographic.
You really need to check these egg images out. They are pretty incredible. Like a friend said, "Great Eggs!"
"The orange hue of this zebra longwing butterfly egg may warn predators: "Eat me if you dare." The threat would not be idle. The egg contains cyanide and other toxins ingested by adults from the plants they eat."
Check out these egg images at the National Geographic website.
