locations - beast’s castle ♔So we went over to the Loire Valley in France where the River Loire runs along. […] And there was one chateau that just stood out as stunning. It was the one of Chambord, built by François de Pontbriant. And he designed this castle that just had this imposing power and strength to it. And the truth of that place adds credibility to your drawing in a funny kind of a way. I guess, you know, just to explain to you a little bit about how I think, and when I was a kid, I didn’t do drawings to do a drawing of something. I did a drawing so I could enter into an imaginary world. My paper was like a magic mirror that I could do a drawing, and you just step right through it and suddenly you’re living in the time of the dinosaurs, or you’re living somewhere and you’re experiencing it. And that with that castle, that was really important as a place where I could step into it - Glen Keane [Discovering the Beauty in the Beast.]
So obviously I didn’t sleep through the night. I’ll have to start taking a sleep agent. FUCK waking up at 2am.

What a weird cat.
Last month I had the chance to see an amazing research project in action: the capturing and tagging of snowy owls on the coast of Maryland.
Snowy owls usually spend their summers up in the arctic circle, and their winters in Canada. But this year, a huge migration of the owls — the largest seen in decades — brought owls as far south as Florida.
What caused the owl population boom? A lemming population boom! Lemmings are small, hamster-like rodents — and they’re owls’ primary prey in the arctic. That first photo (taken by biologist Jean-Francois Therrien in Northern Quebec) shows a snowy owl nest ringed with the carcasses of 70 lemmings - a feast waiting for the soon-to-be hatched owlets.
Once those owlets grew up, they spread south into the US. Owl researchers seized the opportunity to capture a few of the owls and equip them with super-light, solar-powered GPS transmitters.
