Mo Devlin (USA) - Frozen Posies

Over his thirty years in the hobby, American photographer Mo Devlin has successfully bred many of the Central and South American cichlid fishes. His passion for the aquarium hobby is only rivaled by his love of photography. Recently he develops the love of taking pictures of frozen flowers with a macro lens to create abstract compositions. He captures different patterns, light, texture and details of each frozen flower. (src. Artist’s biography & Fubiz)

Water, by itself, is not actually that good at remembering how to become ice.
It’s starting, Adam, I think. Adam? It’s starting…
Virtually all ice on Earth is ice one-h, and a good thing too! Its spacious hexagons make it less dense than liquid water; so it floats on lakes and estuaries and actually insulates fragile aquatic creatures below, protecting them from wind and chill. Without ice one-h life as we know it wouldn’t exist.
