We spent a week in Aruba last year, and I watched the individual feathers on the wings of brown pelicans flying near the beach. I zoomed in on all these shots, but sometimes there were people near theses birds! I just love the different ways they use their wings and their feet, and in some you can see into their eye.
At the 11th second into the 12th second, a frog skips across the water surface 4 times, leaving spots just like a flat stone was skipped! If you download and freeze it, and just move back and forth across that one second you can see the dots form. That's what I did to get the still photo that goes with this post.
We met this frog recently, and the toad much earlier in the summer, but I liked both their faces. Am also adding a tadpole, which was swimming around when we saw the Big Frog.
We have been taking a walk in the woods near our neighborhood most days. Today it was raining and there were lots of great textures. I was captivated by the frogs - will post more of those separately - but really liked this crater-like shape in the upper left as a raindrop hit the water, and the echoes of that as other shapes were mid- or post-formation elsewhere. Also note the frog head to the lower right, poking out of the water.
