Globigerine Ooze

Well I suppose that's not what will become of the snow that's falling today, coating several strata of now filthy micro glaciers underneath it that may or may not see a thaw anytime soon. In drier weather I recently came up on a cast-out book, The Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Animal Kingdom by V.J. Stanek. It was good and dry thank goodness because the Pictorials are really amazing, tight cuts of the most striking animal glamour. Above, glamour and luxe too small for the naked human eye. No one really knows exactly how oil came to be, perhaps it's fossilized reptiles, perhaps algae, vintage globigerine ooze.
