Burton has launched a Kickstarter to turn the photographs into a book. Check out more incredible portraits below.

A Crow Rides a Bald Eagle: Hilarious Tattoo Becomes Reality


I love Dan Climan’s tattoo work and this crow riding a bald eagle is one of my favourites (I actually saved this image to my computer). I couldn’t believe my eyes today when I saw this Colossal post, featuring photos by photographer Phoo Chan of a crow riding a bald eagle in real life! I love the Internet.
