Named after Proteus because it can change it's shape at will.

That's a switch but the background looks dark and spooky. I knew it! But it's a gorgeous macro, or is it a macro???

Those flowers are weird little beautiful things. Lovely.

Beautiful. You're the only person I know who can make a flower look sinister.

Oh god, I'm running amok with apostrophes, a'r'e'n't I?

Interesting about the other comments, I find it completely realistic and not sinster - looks to me like an old master painting - it's all about the lighting and the color and the details.

Catalina is definitely worth a trip - lots of places to escape the crowded Avalon. My favorite was camping along one of the remote coves - 27 years ago (sheesh).
