Why are we so attracted to data visualizations?
Today’s graphic is here to answer that question. First off, our brains are very visual. Consuming data using a visual representation is much faster than reading. It only takes 1/10th of a second to understand a visual scene. Gaining knowledge seems to be fast and easy when using infographics. That’s why our motto at Daily Infographic is to “Learn something new everyday”.
We’re not just here to provide you infographics, but the information they provide. To broaden your mind and pique your interest. With data visualization use growing hundreds of times across all information mediums
Can weasels fly? According to an image captured by amateur photographer Martin Le-May, they can if they hitch a ride on the back of a woodpecker.
The picture shows a least weasel (Mustela nivalis) clutching on the back of a European green woodpecker (Picus viridis), likely as a result of a predatory attack gone awry. (Watch: “Hoarders: Acorn Woodpeckers.”)
Le-May told BBC News he snapped the photo Monday afternoon while visiting Hornchurch Country Park in East London. In fact, his presence may have saved the bird’s life.
“I think we may have distracted the weasel, as when the woodpecker landed it managed to escape and the weasel ran into the grass,” he told the BBC.
