My aunt died last summer, and one of the things I received from her home is a clear plastic angled sculpture which refracts sunlight, throwing rainbow patches all over our living room and kitchen area. They change position as the sun moves throughout the day. This morning I saw one had landed on our wedding bouquet, which we had dried and framed. We just loved how this looked.
I was on a gentle long, flat walk when I looked up and saw a hollowed out tree trunk with dead branches sticking out, and for the first time saw how branches extend into a tree trunk! From a leverage perspective, this makes sense, but I just have never thought about there being branch mechanics beyond simple strength of material.
The second picture gives a bit more context for the closeup.
This bird sat high in a tree in our back yard for at least 40 minutes after I first noticed it. Just happy to have had the visitor.
I just thought it was striking how much some of the ice crystals on our window looked like palms by the beach. Then I noticed the two crystals that looked like birds, and how the edge of the windowpane looked like the edge of the water with waves crashing.
We were walking today, and I looked up and saw this beautiful shape way up high in a tree. Wanted to share, especially since the first photo I ever posted was a heart-shaped puddle. I can't remember how the heart shape came to represent the actual heart which has a shape nothing like it. Will have to look that up!
Here is the picture I cropped from, just for perspective:
