The image of a Lawnmower Blenny, posted for Coneflower is titled "Mind Expansion", & as you can see, it is using the audio from the receptive arrayed "Elephant Ear" coral, to tune in to where any algae may be. It can then zero in on the received data to go forth & eliminate it, the function of it`s nomenclature.
On Planet Earth, one can observe the last stage of a Green Polyped Leather coral, in the process of cloning itself through "fission".
I will collect the new specimens, attach them to a base, (of random reef rubble) & set them in an appropriate location to fill out the growing reef.
The header, a composite of the same cactus bloom from a few images, is linked to images encompassing these blooms in multiple stages of the flowering process.
I`m not done yet.
I met a young man (How`s that Mitch) on the boardwalk in Venice today who had some of his work on display.
We talked for a little about his techniques, & I was very impressed with the results. The extravagance of his pieces leave you wondering whether you`re viewing photographic prints, or painted canvases.
Please do go to this link, & mention how you feel about his art. You will be astounded, I promise.
I hope you all had as wonderful a day as I did, with my daughter & granddaughters, revisiting places such as the boardwalk, where many years ago, we`d go to forget my troubles.
I haven`t been far from home for a long time, but even in a place like Venice, I was quite surprised at how many people loved my beard. Some ladies wished to feel it. I refused. Ya right. Men wanted to know how long it took to grow. I always tell them real men can grow a beard of this length quite rapidly, probably 3/4 months.
Hah, I remember years ago someone asked me that same question & I told him the secret was cigarette ash. His friends later told me he walked around with the contents of an ashtray smeared on his face.
Here Mitch`s link.
Do go check it out.
