American Darren Pearson is also known as Darius Twin. It creates bright light videos in night shooting mode with long exposure. Instead of paints and tassel Pearson uses LED lamps. He even developed his own LED design and poetically called her "Night Writer". The artist tells that the Pablo Picasso didn’t pay much attention to his drawing drawing (learn more about the personal life of the Great Artist), and the most difficult in his work calls the need to find a place for filming where random people do not go and no light noise.

This unusual frog – poisonous tree. It refers to a family from a class of amphibians, numbering 179 species, and meets in the rainforest of South America. The brighter the frog is painted, the stronger her poison. That is why predators living in South America’s rules (read about how real shamans live there), bypass the side of blue, green and orange potential victims (taught by bitter experience!). The body of the tree does not produce its own poison, but accumulates it from insects, who eat frogs, – ticks, ants and beetles. Scientists checked this fact – the amphibians contained in captivity and had a different diet were significantly less poisonous. The tree has developed a curious mechanism to alleviate vertical movements: his body highlights mucus, the frog sticks to the surface and climb up it is much easier for it. Earlier, "my planet" talked about this and other ways that use animals to adapt to one way or another methods of movement.
