Red Breasted Merganser On Rock
I'm impressed by how many different patterns and colours make up this duck's body. It isn't random - there is or was a reason for each bit - they each conveyed an advantage.

Kelp on Stone

So you are a tiny kelp seed (what do those look like?)  You attach to a massive hard thing.  How

Seurat Bathing At Asnieres
This shot really reminds me of a Georges Seurat painting: A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte

Not least because I saw it the week before in the British National Gallery.

Claira Splashing With Her Bucket
The beach at Spanish Banks is really flat. When the tide goes out there is a thin layer of water that goes out a long way and it warms up to a reasonable temperature.
