I like Hydrus much better than Pinterest. Since it saves images locally, I don't have to fret about the legality of copying images to a public website. Also, organising collected stuff is much easier/more intuitive.
And in contrast to just saving them by hand to my website, it *keeps track of URLs* the images were found at.
- Let hydrus download a couple of hundred images from a person who uploads their animal photos to tumblr and usually tags them with species names.
- Search for the name of the species in the first photo in my *inbox*
- Mark all images that do NOT show that species, and remove the automatically imported tag, reload so they aren't shown any more
- Add my preferred version of the tag to all images
- Remove automatically imported tag from all images
- Archive images
- reload, repeat
Rip all my DVDs and have access to the contents digitally without having to sort through external drives physically!
Collect all the photos and art I want from the 'net without worrying about my laptop's disc filling up!
And all that tucked away somewhere the fans can run without me hearing them in my living room!
Bweeeh! It's the dream!

ars anatomica has a post where they share some facts about vampire bats and human blood vessels that could be used in vampire fiction.
(CONTENT WARNINGS: teeth, blood, photos of wounds, including decorative scarification before it scars over)
Mildly related: it seems like there are two species of corvids with yellow bills: The yellow-billed magpie, and the alpine chough.
There are seven secies of black and white magpies.
Five of them used to be considered one species, and only have been split off after genetic analyses.
You know what, for the purpose of tagging photos I found online, I'll pretend there are 3 species of magpies, because *I cannot do genetic analysis on digital photos*
