Fascinating textures

Last updated over 2 years ago

To create this collection I started with some images that caught my eye in the "March of Life" on the EOL home page. Then I went looking. I knew that moth and butterfly scales had very cool structure. And I have always like macro photography of feathers. I started searching EOL using keywords that might turn up good things like "scales" and "texture" and "repetitive" and "ridged." I'm still looking for some good examples of texture from reptile skin or fish scales and will continue to add to the collection. If you would like to help work on this project with me, join the community "Finding fascinating textures." Thanks to Rod Page for the shout-out at iPhylo
