I don’t know about you, but these macro shots by Dusan Beno kind of freak me out. I mean seriously, what is that thing on the top? (Apparently it’s a buzzer midge, but that can’t be real…can it?)

Postscript: Robert L. Carter
The civil-rights activist and former federal judge Robert L. Carter died  Tuesday, at the age of ninety-four. Carter, seated above with Jack  Greenberg, worked for the N.A.A.C.P. Legal Defense and Educational Fund,  and presented its case in arguments that led to the Supreme Court’s  1954 decision in Brown v. Board of Education. This portrait, by Platon, was part of our project on leaders of the civil-rights movement, and was first published as part of our multimedia Portfolio “The Promise.” Photographs from this series are currently on view at the New York Historical Society.

Frances Densmore recording Blackfoot chief Mountain Chief on a cylinder phonograph for the Bureau of American Ethnology, 1916

I wonder if this recording still exists.
