Light Dashing through Raindrops

If you view the movie below, you will see light which has streamed through raindrops on the windshield of my car and onto a blank page in the book I was reading.




Fly Eye(s)

My offspring found this insect on our car and knew it was the kind of creature I might like to try to take a picture of.  What struck me the most was the size of the "eyes" and then the clarity of the golden wings in this shot.  What a face!

Lily Brain?

We kayaked in a pond where we have done so for the last almost 20 years, and saw something new to us!  Where there are waterlilies growing, we saw grayish blobs floating just under the surface.  When we got closer, we realized they were attached to the lily stems on one side.  If we touched them they dropped and then floated back up.  They felt slimy in the same way as the underside of the lily pads.  They have convolutions just like a brain.  Wild!!

Whale Sparkles and Textures

We went on a whale watch and saw multiple whales, including a mother and calf.  I was struck by form and texture in general, particularly the swaths of smooth and bumps.
