Weekly Photo Challenge:Geometry

Friends, Geometry is all around us in nature.  When I first took this photograph, i loved the way the Common Loon was suspended in a sea of sine waves.  Upon further study (sine waves on water), I learned that these waves are more correctly called trochoidal shapes and are narrower at the peak than a true sine wave.  A geometry lesson for me.  Never heard of a trochoid shape before.  til Tomorrow MJ
