Cuddle Up



Absolutely love this group hug... 
Caterpillars? Birds? It’s actually a group of European Bee-eaters cuddling together on a small tree branch. The birds do look so much like a caterpillar though, that photographer José Luis Rodríguez named the image Oruga de Plumas, or “caterpillar of feathers.”

Millefiori





The art of Millefiori —Thousand Flowers,  dates back to sixteenth century Venice, in which coloured glass rods are fused and cut to create flower patterns and incorporated in glass to make beads.
