or maybe they are here already in the Fluids lab at the Uni .. I caught a few candidates yesterday in my sketchbook, including a fully-fledged one with its lifeline tubes attached, an ominous looking claw, metal twins staring out from the wall .. glad I’m not around the lab at night

And here are some other morphisms –

the poppy seed head below reminded me of a knight’s helmet, and is called ‘as for me .. I’ll be a knight’ – a line from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

‘watching …’

For me, more robots in this one! – and fish below.

Below, one more ‘morphism’ taken this summer which I entitled ‘Birth of the Medusa’. Plants may sometimes may take on strange anthropomorphic forms, especially when they are just emerging, as this one is.
