A Flutter in the Darkness

  1. Yes, “flutter” is a good description. If you don’t see the stem, it looks precisely like a delicate sea creature. There are an unbelievable number of bubbles here. I wonder if the pond is always aerated or maybe just near the surface? Fascinating image. I keep seeing parts of it again underneath the “wings”.

    • I don’t know where these bubbles are coming from, but maybe this plant is decomposing? Also, there are springs that feed into this pond, so I’m sure that contributes to some of the bubbles that have appeared in my photos. All of my bubbles have been frozen bubbles, however, there is one little “pool” on my parents’ property that we call “the enchanted pool” because it is fed by a spring, and it never freezes, no matter what the temperature is outside (and it gets very, very cold in northern Maine, as you might imagine).

  4. I wonder if those are bubbles given off by the leaf decomposing.

  8. It has the look of a reptilian wing to me…something from way back in our pre-history, maybe…. Very nice….

    • I see that, Scott, and had a similar thought about it. Thanks for sharing your impression.
