    I thought this was the remains of a melted glacier. Currently highly topical as a subject.

    Definitely bird-like. (K)

  3. I thought it might be a type of what we call “yard vomit” (the real name for it is slime mold) – a mold that appears in wet or rainy weather, kind of spontaneously, and looks like someone threw up. It comes in different colors, is harmless, and mystifying until you know what it is. I thought maybe you had a white version there!

    • Sheer stone. I haven’t seen that muck around here actually and am suddenly rather grateful for that! In spite of the tourists the water remains fairly clean.

    Islands in the stream…

    • I like how what is in fact a small stone formation in the river seem so large. It reminds a bit of Madagascar’s shape? It also reminds me of a sea horse.

    I see a couple of different animals in the ‘foam’ or is it ‘litter’?
    A white rabbit or even perhaps a platypus with her head turned up.

    • It’s a stone formation Jules. I’m going to look the platypus up, no idea what one looks like. It reminds me of a sea horse actually, or the shape of the island Madagascar.

      • Jules says:

        Ah, the white threw me off. Yes, I thought of an island too. 🙂

        • Quite incredible the difference in colour of the part showing above the water and the rest of it underneath. Love the contrast and part of the reason why I took the photo, besides the shape grabbing my attention. 🙂

    • A quick scan tells me the first time scientists saw a platypus they thought it was a hoax!!

        Speaking of hoaxes I was watching a show that said piranha fish aren’t man eaters. But the people in the area of this one locale wanted the visitors to go away… and scared them with that tale.

        “The fact is that hungry piranha will bite almost anything, even other piranhas. However, piranha normally feasts on other species of fish or wounded animals–not humans. In fact, more piranhas are eaten by people then people are eaten by piranhas.”

        • Good luck to those who are prepared to catch and eat a piranha! That said, in South Africa crocodile is considered a delicacy, mopani worms are good for one and some will even want snake served in their favourite restaurant! We don’t have piranhas in South Africa, thank goodness, I’d like to tell such a tall tale to get rid of some people for sure.
