CHOSEN: Given the honor of naming a newly discovered species of Tanzanian butterfly, actor and environmentalist Harrison Ford, 59, named the butterfly Georgia, after his 11-year-old daughter, reports USA Today.

SOLD: A photo taken by Yoko Ono of John Lennon’s blood-stained eyeglasses from when he was fatally shot outside his New York apartment building in 1980 was purchased by an anonymous buyer at an auction in London Wednesday for about $13,000, reports Reuters. The photo, one of only six copies, was put up for sale by Johnnie Walker, a fund-raiser for the non-profit Artist Residencies of Tokyo (ART), which aids Japanese artists. Walker originally bought the print from Ono, now 69, in a private sale and agreed to abide by her wish that he would only ever sell it to help ART. No word if he is related to the whiskey Johnnie Walker.
