Better not to touch it.

I just realised the absence of photos of my cat on my moblog. That's unacceptable. So... here he is! :)

What can I say? I left home today with the intention of shooting some birds, but ended up distracted by bees and wasps. Spent about an hour surrounded by them. But I think it was worth it. :)

As I promised, here are some shots showing the geological richness of that beach where I shoot the sand hopper.

1. An obvious angular unconformity. The lower rocks (schists and greywackes from over 270 million years ago) are visibly folded. The red sandstone on top was formed about 230 million years ago after the immersion, folding, emersion, weathering, erosion and immersion of the lower rocks. Or something along those lines. :D

2. Cliff. Red sandstone-to-limestone transition.

3. Fossilized burrow.

4. Weathered sandstone.

5. Conglomerate.

I'm sure there was much more interesting stuff there that I missed. Next time I'm kidnapping a geologist to take with me. :D

Just look at him. Cute, but the instinct is there...
