Comment: The natilus, a relative of the octopus is the only cephalopod to have an external shell. The asymmetrical shell, a true "natural beauty", has fascinated naturalists, mathematicians and physicists for centuries with its perfectly proportioned spiraled shell. We can only hope to emulate its beauty if only for a fleeting moment in snow.

River's Surprise, Idaho, USA * River's Surprise depicts a white sturgeon, an endangered species of the Kootanie River in Idaho and Canada. The sturgeon had been so plentiful at one time that they were fished for a livelihood. In the past there were sturgeon measuring 16 feet pulled from the river. Their prehistoric looks and long life span make them an unusual fish. This is a humorous account of a sturgeon caught unexpectedly by a fly fisherman. * 2048 x 1536 * (616KB)

Knot Divided, Minnesota, USA * Can a divided knot be not divided? We start with the simplest possible knot: the overhand knot, also known as the trefoil or pretzel know, which we will then split lengthwise along the whole strand that forms the three loops. But there is a twist that may lead to surprises: the knotted strand is actually a triply-twisted Mobius ban! Thus the question: does our cut separate the structure into two pieces, or does it form a single, highly knotted, twisted strand? * 2048 x 1536 * (606KB)
