(nearly) Wordless (after) Wednesday

Yesterday was uber blog hop day, what with the spotlight and the widow’s blog hop, so again, I missed Wordless Wednesday. Here is hoping this makes up for it!

I want to talk about titles, so it may be a good thing I missed the Wordless part of the hop.

This particular fractal reminds me of an animal I added to her pond. I got her a giant, blue-eyed plecostomus which looked like a throwback to the Mesozoic Era. He was seriously cool. Unlike aquarium plecos, he was nearly eight inches long when we put him in the pond. He had a horned back like a horseshoe crab with a big sail.

What is your Chinese Zodiac animal for your birth year? Do you know your element? Are you a Yin or Yang? Do you like fish anywhere besides on a plate with sauce?

  2. Lovely fractals. Love the colours but am not seeing the same things as anyone else.
