Can infra-red "Hot or Not" be far away?

This is really neat, it shows off the difference between warm and cold blooded critters. Also, how effective bird's feathers can be as an insulator.

Just seemed to me like it was pretty obvious my post was going with the hot or not meme to start with. You repackaged it (very) slightly and get nominated for an award... seemed very NYTimes* to me.


* see recent NYTimes scandals more Bragg than Blair.

It was really just peevishness because I never win anything.

I don't like the way that Satanic Puppy's eyes are glowing. Stop it! It's trying to eat my soul!

Man, that puppy doesn't have a chance against the Predator.

And of course pinnipeds are way cool, especially if they've just come out of the water!

I was surprised not to see humans under "mammals." Are there any infrared human pictures out there?

Bah! He's got nothing on the squirrel monkey.

Great link.

Infrared portraits are here.

And the more general gallery is here, including whimsical items like a microwaved burrito and a toaster.
