Philo T. Farnsworth, who grew up on an Indiana farm, saw these same row patterns which gave him the idea of using electrons to "paint" in rows on a phosphorescent screen. That's how he invented television. Great patterns in your photos.
I love stories like that! They serve as reminders to keep our eyes and minds open. Metaphors for solutions to problems are all around us, especially in Nature. Also love the name Philo T. Farnsworth...it's downright poetic and if it fits, my next pet may be so named.
