365 #53 Do: believe in things you can't see

I love these radiolaria. The images come from an incredibly illustrated article about sea life from Harper's Magazine, 1889. I like the comparison to snowflakes, and the fact that they are so resilient (they will climb out of a glass, and regenerate lost limbs).
 This is actually a birthday card for someone who is resilient, magnificently unique and a maker of well children and families. I admire her immensely and am grateful for having known her so many years.

The text reads 'The radiolaria float in abundance on the surface of the sea, and are of forms as various and as beautiful as snow-flakes'.
