Richard L. Howley describes his images as his “eccentric ventures in microscopy and natural history.” He submits his articles and images to Micscape Magazine produced by Microscopy UK.

Richard included this particular image in his 2010 article entitled, An Anniversary Article, in which he dedicated it to his wife for her unflagging and enthusiastic support and in celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary. In the article he invited her to select 25 of her favorite images of his which he photographed using polarized light. Of the 25, I chose this beauty for today’s MotD.

All of his images are fascinating. This one however is stunning. It’s amazing what you find when you get up close and personal with Mother Nature.

Happy Coloring!
