#TIL there is a species of Flounder named "peacock flounder". When they don't use their colour changing ability to look like sandy seafloor or similar, they are moss green with bright blue rings which are limned with black.
Thsi does seem somewhat similar to the look of the blue-ringed octopus...
Ich habe heute einige unfassbare Bilder gemacht. Inklusive durch den knietiefen Bach waten, auf dem Bauch durch Brennesseln robben, durch Scherben und scharfkantige Steine, unter Vermeidung von zuviel auffälliger Bewegung ein Loch im Sand graben um mit der Kamera ein tieferen Winkel erreichen zu können und nicht zuletzt einarmig und nonverbal Passanten davon überzeugen dass es ok ist dass ich da liege und dass ich keine Hilfe brauche. Aber bitte. Hübsches Foto.

Anyway, in the kitchen there was a string like "I want to put away A, but I can't because B is in front of the cabinet, and I can't put away B because the place it belongs in is dirty, which stymied me since Friday.
But I managed to *halfway* clean the place B belonged, so I could put away B (and C, which belonged in the same place), and then A.
I found it. I found the old Japanese-made world map I came across years ago and couldn't find again that in my opinion illustrates the principle of unconscious expectations very well.
See, Japan is a group of islands.
In this world map made in Japan, very nearly everything is a group of islands.
It's the solstice! The shadow of the gnomon in the #sundial at work is tracing down the outermost line. Through the day it will go across the ground and then back up the outermost line on the other side.
