Butterfly Wing Alphabet.
Entire Alphabet Found on the Wing Patterns of Butterflies.
Nature photographer Kjell Bloch Sandved noticed one day that many of the butterfly wings he photographed strongly resembled letters and numbers. So he searched, and managed to find all 26 letters in the English language plus the numbers 0-9 in the wings of butterflies.

Un cometa está dirigiéndose a un encuentro cercano con el Sol en el 2013. Su nombre oficial es C/2012 S1. También se conoce como ISON. Podría volverse un objeto muy brillante en el cielo de la Tierra para finales de este año. Algunas personas ya lo están llamando el “cometa del siglo”.
The scaly foot gastropod is probably the worst snail name ever invented. Especially for one of the most incredible organisms on the planet. How many creatures can you name that have an iron shell? None. No creature can grow a metal sheath around itself—except Scaly G. Living nearly 2,400 meters (8,000 ft) below the ocean’s surface, near hydrothermal vents, the scaly foot gastropod incorporates the heavy metals floating in its habitat into its shell.
Sweden has experienced such a sharp fall in the number of prison admissions in the past two years that it has decided to close down four prisons and a remand centre.
"We have seen an out-of-the-ordinary decline in the number of inmates," said Nils Öberg, the head of Sweden’s prison and probation services. "Now we have the opportunity to close down a part of our infrastructure that we don’t need at this point of time."
Prison numbers in Sweden, which have been falling by around 1% a year since 2004, dropped by 6% between 2011 and 2012 and are expected to do the same again both this year and next, Öberg said.
As a result, the prison service has this year closed down prisons in the towns of Åby, Håja, Båtshagen, and Kristianstad, two of which will probably be sold and two of which will be passed for temporary use to other government authorities.
