Excerpt from Everything Ladybug!
Diapause (Ladybug Hibernation):Diapause is the insect version of hibernation. It is thought that ladybugs engage in this activity to conserve resources and to facilitate reproduction. These cute but sometimes mischievious little critters gather in places such as tree trunks, logs, ground cover, buildings & sometimes in peoples homes when temperatures drop below 55 degrees. Ladybugs require heat aquired from their environment to maintain and regulate their body temperature. Below this temperature you will not see ladybugs active or flying around. In the southwestern U.S. they gather on the ground and cover it like a blanket of red and black. They live off of their own energy reserves during this period and can survive in diapause for up to nine months. Ladybugs will come out of this state when the temperature reaches 55 degrees farenheit (13 degrees Celcius). This is usually consistent with food sources becoming available again.

For a wonderfully eerie ongoing project entitled Ghost Photographs American artist Angela Deane alters found photos, turning people into anonymous phantoms. The results range from amusing and delightful to wistful and melancholy. Deane’s painted snapshots reveal that ghosts go on vacation, attend prom and even go trick-or-treating. They have parties and gather to watch ballgames. It turns out that ghosts are just like the rest of us and we’re all ghosts ourselves.

"These ghosts are the ghosts of moments, of days, of experiences. With the specifics of identity obscured by paint I like to imagine it’s as if you and I can partake in the memory, share in the experience, allow the snapshot to seem familiar. Let’s share some memories, shall we?"

To view many more images from this haunting series follow Angela Deane here on Tumblr at ghostphotographs. Prints are available by contacting Deane through her personal website.

Behold the super awesomeness of this massive green macaron. You aren’t dreaming, we just pinched ourselves to make sure. This enormous cookie was custom-made by Pierre Hermé, the famous French pastry renown for his macarons, who dubbed his colossal creation the “Big Macaron.” It was presented as a special prize to the runner-up wrestler at the Sumo Senshuraku championship tournament in Japan.
We might consider taking up sumo wrestling if it meant a chance at getting our hands on monster macaron like this.
