Two of a Kind

Every Tuesday, you can expect to see us profiling two things in nature or nature-inspired art, design, products, etc. that aren’t directly related but share similar physical features in a series we like to call “Two of a Kind”, which was largely inspired by Oh Joy!’s “this vs. that” by Bekka Palmer.

I’m starting the series off with goose barnacles and a grey heron. The goose barnacles are so aptly named and, personally, I think they resemble beaks. When I first happened upon Mike Baird‘s photos of the goose barnacles I immediately thought of baby birds in a nest, awaiting to be fed. And I couldn’t help but think of a particular scene from Finding Nemo.

What do the goose barnacles remind you of?
