Thanks cyanobacteria!

I bet you didn't know that cyanobacteria are not just responsible for the algae blooms that choke waters and kill life, but also for the oxygen we breathe? Well, they are, so keep an eye on this little sucker, the original photosynthesizer that's outlived us by several billion years.

(Oh, and it's also the source of natural blue-color dye :)

H/T to CD, for her birthday :)
