Palate Cleanser #65, Deep Sea Version

These gorgeous images (a shout out to Jen!) come to us from the lovely and thoughtful Sally, all the way from Down Under! Hey Dani, doesn't the red one look like a Chihuly?

  1. beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I love invertebrates above all else!

    Thank you Marzie and Sally

  2. Oh, WOW! That's crazy cool!!! It does look like a Chihuly and just as enjoyable but without the high price tag! As they say, "the best things in life are free".

    Sally, Marzie, those are amazing photos! Thanks for sharing. :D
