The extraordinary in the ordinary.

Some things we think of as ugly or ordinary can be beautiful and extraordinary when we see them through the eyes of a photographer, a naturalist, or a scientist.

I’m not a scientist, just an amateur photographer, but I deeply appreciate nature.  These ants that swarmed around a little puddle of syrup that leaked from a garbage bag were interesting to me.   They seem to come out of nowhere.  They’re so industrious and play an important role in our ecological balance.

I took a similar photo last August while in Florida (here is my post about that).   One night we went fishing and used shrimp for bait.   This is what happened to one of my shrimp after just a few minutes of sitting in the hot sun:
