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.

THIS IS MY FAVORITE THING ON THE INTERNET
So let me tell you about the shittiest parent on the motherfucking planet.
I work at a grocery store and this man comes in with his 11 year old son. He buys a pack a cigarettes and a two cases of beer. The son was holding a two dollar drawing pad and placed it on the belt and I guess the dad didn’t notice it at first but when I was about to scan the pad he asked where’d it have come from and turned towards the kid and asked “Did you put that shit up there?”. He told me to put it back and then told his 11 year old child that he “ain’t paying for that gay ass notebook.”. So I looked at the kid, who was close to tears and saying how he ran out of paper at home and my heart broke. So I gave the pad to him, for free, and told the dad I would take care of it. I gave the kid some tokens for a game outside and said I would look forward to buying some of his drawings and paintings when he’s all famous. He kids face was so priceless and I thought everything was good. But then, about 10 ten minutes after giving the kid his notebook, I walked outside and saw this. The drawing pad all ripped up and tossed on the pavement. I could only imagine what happened in the parking lot, but I know that that poor kid heart is fucking ripped apart, just like this pad.
I’m fucking horrified that there are parents like this, who, just because it’s not masculine or gender specificthey won’t let their children follow their true passions or explore interests that lead to their happiness. Even more so, I’m horrified that parents don’t care about the fine arts anymore because it doesn’t have job security. Since when did it ever matter to a child if their passion makes them money or not? Parenting is about supporting whatever makes your child happy. Have some fucking consideration for your child’s wants not your homophobic and anti-art ideals.
Everybody needs to see this
it’s back, and i will not NOT reblog it v.v ever
what is gay about drawing anyway? you’re holding a pencil and sliding it over a bloody piece of paper, it’s not like you’re trying to suck a cock
Also you see the great artists from the past and they’re mostly males. What the hell is wrong with the kid’s dad
