These Spiders Look Like They Carry A Mirror In Their Back

A rare kind of spiders known as “sequined spiders”, “mirror spiders” or “twin peaked Thwaitesia” is found in all states of Australia. This isn’t a stained-glass sculpture or piece of delicate jewelry – it’s a real live spider.

The reflective scales on their abdomen are composed of reflective guanine, which these spiders use to give themselves color. The colors can be cream, green, yellow, or red. Male spiders are no longer than 3mm while female spiders can grow up to 4mm. There is no specification regarding their eggs or whether they form a web or not. But, they predate on small insects and live on leaves like all other species of animals.

Under the microscopic view, it can be observed that these patches pulsate with the spider’s heartbeat which helps them to change the size of them when threatened. A shiny effect is created as the scales reflect light and it works in the spider’s favor as it can camouflage through this.

It’s known that many creatures with distinctively attractive futures often are venomous to humans, but weather these spiders are on that category or not is yet to be discovered.

Photographer “Time Travels” by Photoshopping Herself into Old Celebrity Photos

Have you ever imagined if you could go back in time and take a picture with famous people? If yes, you will probably enjoy a similar series in 2013, called “Time Travel” created by an artist, Flora. She is a young fine art photographer from Hungary. She uses exquisite photo manipulation in order to create surreal images that are thematically focused on identity, relationships, and dreams. However, today we will mainly focus on how she discovers the possibilities of the well known “selfie” phenomenon with famous people. Let’s admit that it would be pretty difficult to explain the concept of a selfie to a person from the 20th century. But this fact makes these series even more interesting!

“After the first official picture of a black hole was released last week, I decided to look into the Theory of relativity and I’ve been wondering how cool it was, if I could travel faster than the speed of light, ergo I could travel back in time. While I’ve been making a “selfie” with Albert Einstein (photoshopping myself into a picture of him) I decided to celebrate this amazing discovery with a series of pictures, where I travel back in time. ” writes Flora in her website.

Check out the gallery below. Also, tell us in the comment section below; If you could go back in time who would you like to take a selfie with?
