Appearances Can Be Deceiving

Whatcha' don't see through a macro lens... Tee-hee-hee
  What is manifest to the eye may not be factually valid.

Shouldn't aquatic snails avoid the appearance of evil?


  1. OK. I don't get it. Looks like a fabulous macro shot to me Dana ?

    1. Sybil,
      My first sentence was meant to be a figure of speech meaning that you see all kinds of unusual things through a macro lens. When I snapped the picture, it captured the critters in positions that gave inference that a scene of micro-violence was about to take place right in front of my macro lens. I had some chuckles from thinking about the coincidence that the snail appeared to be about to devour the poor, innocent, little cyclops without warning... when actually, all the snail was doing was grazing on algae. I also thought that it looks like the cyclops was watching me and my bright flashing light, and it didn't see the "monster" approaching from behind.

    2. Got it.

      So that little tiny guy is a cyclops.
