    Apparently, the sex organs of certain worms can detach, grow eyes, and swim around looking for other detached sex organs to mate with.

    From Danny Lawson's twitter post



    Description:
    Multiple exposure, created in camera during an armoured combat demonstration, part of the Elizabethan bank holiday event at the Royal Armouries in Leeds. #yorkshire #leeds #thephotohour

    He's a photographer, check his twitter for more pics!
    Λ is the Greek character upon which Cyrillic Л is based, and is often used as a stylistic variant in (hand-)written Cyrillic. My current user title is in fact achieved by using Cyrillic С instead of Σ, because with lunate sigmas all I got was trouble.

    So, as has been pointed out earlier,
    МЕТАНОΛ, more or less.

    Based on the examples here, it's probably Platynereis dumerilii.

    I spent all day in Angel Fire NM doing some ED work. It's a 3 hour drive north and up (8400+ elevation) We left very early this morning to be there by 8:30. Here is the sunrise driving north. Sunrise June4 2019 heading towards Angel Fire.jpg

    My wife woke up to this and snapped a picture. Caboose is at the top and Cholla closest. Cholla is pronounced "choy ya" and it a kind of cactus.

    My wife has a pretty regular routine, so they were waiting when she woke up.

    The caption said it's a storm over Southern California as seen from the ISS.
