PhyloPic,org. I LOVE THIS SITE! Have you ever wanted to do something funky with lots of animal shapes? (well yeah, okay, I do). An amazing person has created this directory - by scientific / common names - of free silhouettes under creative commons licences.
This week I made a draft logo with them, so that I could quickly test an idea I'd had. You could also create infographics really easily with these shapes; or add them to your graphs to help distinguish data series (e.g. frequency of moths vs butterflies, or to represents Birds and Mammals -- see example).
So far, the collection is at about 2000 and growing, and it's got a really nice range of plants and animals to get you going. Thank you so much, PhyloPic.
