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:
We walked in the woods near home this morning and saw these swirls in the ice on top of the fallen leaves, just caught my eye. Here are a few more.
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.
