Red And Green

There is a red and green snake amongst red and green leaves of a plant. I like the looping nature of the snake and how it is on top of each other.

According to Wikipedia, “Healing and snakes were associated in ancient Greek myth with Aesculapius, whose snake-familiars would crawl across the bodies of sick people asleep at night in his shrines and lick them back to health.”

I think of the Coronavirus and think of the symbol for medicine featuring snakes.

Arrowhead

Many ancient civilizations have used arrowheads.

According to Wikipedia, “An arrowhead is a tip, usually sharpened, added to an arrow to make it more deadly or to fulfill some special purpose. The earliest arrowheads were made of stone and of organic materials; as human civilization progressed other materials were used.”

Old Sarum

Old Sarum

Old Sarum

Old Sarum dates back to 3000 BC. It is one of the earliest settlements in the Salisbury area of England. I took photos of the ruins and enjoyed the flow of the old rock of the structures and the flow of the green hills as contrast. The steeple of the new Salisbury church and community is seen in the distance.

Pacific Jellyfish

This is a photo of Pacific Sea Nettle Jellyfish.  They have been roaming the seas for anywhere from 500 to 700 million years.  They move elegantly with their gelatinous umbrella-shaped bell bodies and flowing tentacles.  They dance as if to music and I was quite mesmerized by them.  They range in size from 1 millimeter to 2 meters in size for their bodies.  Their nerve net system is in their epidermis.  Some jellyfish are light-sensitive through something called ocelli while some jellyfish have up to 24 eyes, 2 of which can see colour.  As you can see, there is quite a range.  They also have a life-cycle going from polyps to the medusa stage.
