Upside-Down Trees

This afternoon the southern edge of the pond held clusters of frog eggs. They nestled like black-eyed jewels in the rippling branches of upside-down trees.

Click on image to enlarge. If you look closely, you'll see the black dots inside the eggs, just below the surface of the water (lower left).

So very beautiful - it reminds me of that piece by Escher called Three Worlds where the fish is beneath the reflections on a pond and the floating leaves are above them.

You're exactly right! I used to be hypnotized by that Escher piece. I like that confusion of reflection and reality, then the translation from 3-D to 2-D. And just the intriguing pull of patterns, of course. And that pleasing vertigo. Thanks, Annie.
