Something a little different

Post by Charles Krebs »

Sometimes when exploring a slide I come across a "micro-scene" that just grabs my attention, not necessarily for a specific detail or creature, but simply a graceful juxtaposition of shapes, forms, and colors. Here are three recent examples that I kind of liked.

(Above) Section of a gill on the back of a mayfly larva

Great photographs Charlie. I especially like the first one, it has a very refreshing appearance. :D
