Year of the Snake (part 1)
From Kevin Turner, we have some fine marine "snakes":
Here are a few photos from my work in the San Juan Islands. First two are of a lingcod (Ophiodon elongatus is the scientific name - ophiodon means "snake tooth", visible in the first picture).
This actually looks to me more like a dragon, but it is semi-fitting, since in Chinese we refer to year of the snake as "tail of the dragon", since last year was the year of the dragon... This is just a photo of a dendritic mutant I am studying, and I just used a distortion tool on Adobe Illustrator, pretttty abstract, but I think it is serpentine-like!
