Friday photos

Charles Darwin made them the focus of his study for 10 years; I was able to focus on them this week during after dinner explorations along the Bay of Fundy.  The lowly barnacle, inspiration for Captain Haddock’s best alliterative insults (“billions of blue, bilious, blistering barnacles”) and bane of most boaters existence.  But they’re beautiful, forming a sort of undersea honeycomb, looking cellular in structure, a simple work of art.

  1. Tintin reference FTW! But also beautiful photos–always good to be reminded to look carefully at less glamorous parts of creation!
