Booboo and Friends: The Most Adorable Guinea Pigs on the Internet

We already featured Maru the dog, the cat Shironeko and even Biddy and Darcy, our cute hedgehogs on Instagram. But now we have these little fur balls of guinea pigs Booboo and his friends to add to our list of famous and adorable animals.

A photographer who goes by the nickname “Lieveheerbeestje” takes photos of Booboo and her friends which look like it made for a Guinea Pig Vogue magazine: hipster glasses, bathe in pink tubs and pose with cute flowers on their hair. Booboo weighs about 1kg and is about 2 years old. When asked how Lieveheerbeestje manages to capture Booboo and her other guinea pigs sitting so still, she explained, on her Deviantart profile, that her animals are very calm: “they just don’t move a lot in front of the camera, I guess I am lucky with that!”

Hasan Kale Paints Small Paintings on Tiny Bits of Food

Hasan Kale, an undeniably talented artist from Turkey, pushes the limits of art by painting tiny yet recognizable paintings on tiny pieces of food. Some of Kale’s canvasses are peanuts, split almonds, bananas, beans and even a grain of rice. Most of these are so tiny that they can’t be seen clearly without magnification, which begs the question – how did he do that!? Kale is even planning to paint a silhouette of Istanbul on a strand of hair, and if there’s anyone who can do this, it’s probably him.

Movie and TV producers use VFX or visual effects to achieve scenes that are almost impossible in real life. These before and after  photos reveal just how much they rely on the magic of VFX.

Green-screens aren’t always green, they can technically be of any color, as long as this color is not being worn by any of the actors on screen. When these scenes are recorded, the green-screen color is digitally selected and made transparent by special software.

A Cake That Looks Like a Drop of Water on Your Plate

This Japanese cuisine looks like a giant drop of water but it is actually a form of rise cake, or Shingen Moshi. This cake is called Mizu because it has a water base and is made with agar or gelatin.

Human Organs Made from Flowers and Plants by Camila Carlow

Human Organs Made from Flowers and Plants by Camila Carlow

This delicate series of sculpted plants made to look like human organs is part of a project by artist Camila Carlow titled Eye Heart Spleen. From Carlow’s statement about the project:

The most fascinating and intricate of biological structures, yet we rarely pay heed to the organs inside our body. Regardless of whether we fill ourselves with toxins or nourishing food, whether we exercise or not—our organs sustain us, working away effortlessly and unnoticed.

In a similar way, plants flourishing in the urban environment are a testament to nature’s indifference to our goings on. They grow out of the sides of buildings, in brick walls and between the cracks in concrete, despite of the traffic and pollution.

Blue Forest in Belgium

Just 30 minutes south of Brussels, in Belgium, is a forest called Hallerbos or the Blue Forest. During the spring, the forest’s floor is covered in bluebell flowers which creates a carpet-like effect. Photographer Kilian Schönberger went into the woods to capture these amazing shots.

“The colors are really that blue, especially under the moist conditions of the morning fog. England is famous for its bluebell forests, too,” he said. “There is not too much post processing done. The fog is natural. Forecasting foggy conditions is an essential part of my photography. Some contrast enhancement and color management in the darker parts of the image are all I’ve done.”

Rare Mushroom Photos By Steve Axford

Australia-based retiree Steve Axford uses his camera to capture the visual diversity of fungi and other living things. His photos reveal that there are far more types of fungi than the pale, umbrella-shaped variety that most of us usually see.

Many of the rare specimens that Axford shoots look absolutely bizarre and unique. He photographs fungi of all different shapes, sizes, textures, and colors. Many of these species have never been documented in Australia before. “While doing this I have developed an acute interest in the way things fit together,” he says. “Nothing exists in isolation and the more you look, the more you find.”
