Retrospective twenty-six (April 2014)

Given the way in which blogs are presented, I am convinced that posts which reside more than a scroll or two behind the most recent are doomed to languish and to be forgotten. Because I believe there is value in looking at contributions from days, weeks, and even months ago, I present a gallery of images presented during April of 2014. Perhaps it will be interesting to scroll through these and to compare them to those presented during this past month. Be patient, it may take several minutes for all of the images to load fully. Hovering over an image will reveal its title. Clicking one will take you to a carousel view and you can either move through the collection or click the links to read each post in its original form. This is the twenty-sixth in my series of retrospectives. You may find interest in taking a look at the retrospective from two years ago and if you missed any of the others, you can find them all by clicking Retrospective in the tag cloud in the sidebar.

  1. We must be getting closer to when I signed on here, but these are all new to me and it is difficult to pick an absolute favorite. The babies are delightful and you excel at showing them off. But I’m with Linda…as you might guess…Hank is tops with me.
    Whose blood vessels are we seeing there. The placenta is pretty cool also…but probably not a wall hanger. πŸ™‚

  2. Again a collection showcasing the ‘genres’ you are so well versed in: Animal portraits and ‘beauty in natural structures’. In particular I like the flower (again), looking like a painting. Of course I remember the blood vessels πŸ™‚

  3. Oops. Was just reading shoreacre’s post. Is that Argus? The one who had the encounter with the porcupine? Another gem. Should really be displayed somewhere …

  4. Another month come and gone. Hard to believe! I remember all of these. That crocus belongs enlarged and mounted somewhere. What an eye catcher! Your animal portraits are spectacular. Maybe you could publish a children’s book on baby lambs. Their expressions are so endearing. Something to put on your to-do list!! πŸ™‚

    • You know, when I first took the Crocus image I couldn’t make out the figure inside (formed by the reproductive elements of the plant) … can you? Kind of looks like a winged individual (an angel?), with hands raised in prayer. He/she is looking to the right as you view the image. Do you see it? Weird.

      • I definitely see and remember it from last year. Nature certainly is amazing. A great added bonus to that shot! You have a good eye to have found it. Most of us would just have seen the beauty of the whole.

  5. Good to see you on WordPress today, D. I’m very glad you posted the retrospective. I was looking for the placenta post in your archives a week or more ago. I’m also still hunting for the spiral leaves post and your discussion of the Fibonacci sequence. Hope all is well!

  6. Thank you, Dave. It was a real treat, and to quote Karen, “You are all crazy talented on that farm.”

  7. The little white lamb is such a heart-stealer. But I must say, after all of the wonderful babies, it still is the dog I like the best. That’s a wonderful portrait.

    • Thanks so much Linda. That’s Hank, an Anatolian Shepherd … he’s quite the senior citizen these days … a great animal indeed. Thanks for checking in today. D
