We've probably all made a few pancakes in amusingly shaped blobs, but Nathan Shields takes pancake to a whole new level of art. The illustrator, former math teacher, and stay-at-home dad makes pancakes with his kids that range from Star Wars tributes to portraits of Isaac Newton to animals painted in stunning species-level detail.

There's a whole lot more amazing pancakes at his blog Saipancakes, but here are some of our favorite pancake batter recreations of the natural world. [Saipancakes]
