Amazing natural textures

Some of the textures we see in nature are fascinating. Yesterday, during a walk on Sears Island, I found this rock and found the striations quite striking. It’s actually quite a large rock, possibly what is called a glacial erratic, a non-native stone deposited on the shore here when the glaciers receded. Imagine the various minerals that must have come together in molten form millions of years ago. Pictures never do justice to things like this, but here it is anyway!

And I found this exquisite feather on the railing at the Searsport town pier early one morning. Notice the tiny droplets of dew!
