Just because

Laurie liked this photo. It's a tiny limpet on the glass wall of the aquarium, pushing up against the surface tension of the water.

The limpet is about 1 mm, lengthwise. The mouth end is down, and it's chomping away at algae on the glass. One of the antennae is visible.

I like the photo, too. It shows a resiliency that can be found in all life.

That is pretty lovely composition, and has a lot in it, tho' it is minimalist. =)
