What strikes me the most about this picture is the fact that there is a really big Separation in the textures….the coarse, rough, flaky textures of the rock & lichen and the smooth, tubular, round textures of the millipedes. It makes me linger on the photo for a long time. :smt023

I agree with Doug. There is a lot contained in this image to keep you looking. Good timing on the "accident".
