Seeing pink elephants?

Some people see pink elephants, I saw - what?
I went like this:

Our area experienced the first rainy day in a long time. 
Grey skies and a drizzle all day long.
When I went out to pick some of my last carrots for supper I realized how beautifully decorated my sweat peas where. 

Every bit of the plant was covered with beads of silvery water. 
 In I went, got my camera and took some shots.
 Isn't that pretty?
Too bad that I cannot bring the fragrance out as well.
 While I cropped the photos my imagination suddenly run wild. 
An animal materialized in all these flowery pictures.
Can you see it as well?
Splashing in all the purple and mauve was a SEAL.


  1. I do see beautiful flower shots and maybe...just maybe, a few butterflies...but elephants? Really?

  2. Half of the Women See More Colors Than the Rest of the People Do

    Normally, people have three types of cone cells for daylight, for detecting different colors. But some women can see extra colors as they have four types of cone cell receptors. They are called tetrachromats. Compared to them, we all are color blind.

    The first tetrachromat woman was discovered by researchers at Cambridge University in 1993. This is perhaps the most remarkable human mutation ever detected. The fact that all tetrachromats are female intrigued scientists. Now two scientists, working separately, want to investigate systematically for tetrachromats to clarify more about their existence and how they detect colors.


I love getting a comment from you now and then. Be patient, they will appear, I just have to see first if they are OK to publish. No anonymous any more. I am getting too much spam.
