Redditor Proteon shared the top photo of an awesome triceratops made of illuminated jack-o’-lanterns. According to subsequent comments on the Reddit post, the fantastic beast is part of The Great Jack o’Lantern Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor in Croton, New York. A little sleuthing revealed that this radiant dino was actually part of last year’s event.
The 2013 Great Jack o’Lantern Blaze is still going on through November 1st and then again from November 8th to the 11th. If you’re in the New York, New Jersey, Connecticut tri-state area, there are over 5,000 hand-carved jack-o’-lanterns waiting for you. Click here to learn more.

This is what two swans look like if they were drawn using the same methodology used to illustrate dinosaurs.
As depicted by Conway, Koseman, and Naish in All Yesterdays, which is an awesome book of alternate dinosaur visualizations (there are puffy fluffy arctic dinosaurs!) as well as intentional bad visualizations of modern creatures.
Ferrofluid mixed with water colorsThe shapes, you see in these image are about the size of a thumbnail. They are created by mixing ferrofluid with water color and putting it into a magnetic field.
Ferrofluid is a magnetic solution with a viscosity similar to motor oil. When put under a magnetic field, the iron particles in the solution start to rearrange, forming the black channels and separating the water colors from the ferrofluid. The result are these peculiar looking structures.On itsnicethat.com, you can find out more about the projectArtist:
