Exceedingly wonderful photo!

But noticed I’d never applied a name to this observation! Oops. Gotta have at least one observation of this thing on MO…

I still love this photo!

I thought it was a new post as the photo just called out! …no, it is just an old friend.

Yeah, I stacked this one very carefully

The detail was so fine I wanted to be sure I got everything just right. What an exquisite organism!

Very nice!

This is stacked isn’t it? It looks like something processed by NASA /JPL.
