    • Not oil on water but my old friend Leptothrix discophora. See the way the film is shattered in places? Oil slicks don’t do that when they are disturbed; they just flow back together.

        • The next time you see it, try running a stick through it to see if it shatters. Then you’ll know.

    • Thank you, Ken. I don’t think I’ve ever seen the film follow a two-direction flow of water before. Or maybe that’s not what’s going on, but it looks like it to me.

  5. Oh, Iove this, Linda. A sensation of rotation in those two ‘plumes’ of colour. A great composition.
