Added humor value: The contest page is called "When cloning goes wrong," and, while these images do look like cases of genetic engineering gone awry, it also alludes to the Photoshop tool probably most essential to creating such effects, the "clone" tool. Clever!

Mark Scott Abeln

Jimmy, thanks for the laugh!

What does "CHT" stand for?

Toronto's best friend?

John E

CHT -- Cowboy Hat Tip

Thanks John E.

JD

If you look hard on the linked page you'll even find a "Cardinal German Shepherd."

Finally!... proof of a transitional form.
Darwin was right.

I forwarded that link to Cryptomundo, so's they could have some fun with it.

Another Maine Mutant!

Finally!...proof that evolution is impossible.
Darwin was wrong.

Sadly this also shows how good fake can be. Meaning you really can't trust photos in the paper or magazines anymore in that who's to say it hasn't been Shopped.

J.R. Stoodley

Actually, I don't think the photo is that good a fake. Not that I could do better or anything, but you can see right where the bird ends and the dog (or wolf?) begins. By the ear the bird is lighter and the canine darker, everywhere else the canine is difinitely lighter in color and the texture is different. For the most part the sharp dividing line can be seen.

Umm people, I don't know how to say this, but that photo is not a fake. We have those things in our yard. They're pretty nasty to kids. I hope this guy was using a telephoto lens.

Actually, precisely the same variations would probably apply to the original photo of the canine alone, due to the effects of light and shading. I know something about this sort of work -- I may go ahead and do one of my own, just for fun -- and this is a very fine example.

There are some really cool ones available at a site I blogged about last month: http://mazurland.typepad.com/myweblog/2006/08/photomagic.html
I think some of them are startling.

That may be true to a point, but look especially at the blue area between the dark spot behind the ear and the whiteish underside. The transition from bird to canine there is way too unnatural to blame on lighting.

That's just creepy. YUCK!!!!!

You have to appease them, Ed. I put ground round in a bird feeder and they leave me alone.

Mary Poppins (NOT)

I am glad I am not the only one who thought that was completely creepy. Gave me the willies. Double YUCK!

J.R. Stoodley

bill and Ed,

Just get a cat.

bill912

Yeah. I like cats. They taste just like chicken.

St. Stoodley Magnus

bill912,

Your purgatory shall consist of being eaten by 10,000 cats.

bill912

They'll throw up.

J.R. Stoodley

bill912,

That's why purgatory is a temporary thing.

Ann Margaret Lewis

My toddler is just learning his animal names...and he's thoroughly confused now.

Thanks alot, Jimmy.

Ed Peters

ground round. now there's a thought. come to think of it, they did seem more of a bother while the bbq was going....

patrick

Makes a good pet. It can even chase theives, provided it's not in a birdcage. :D
