Small Mercies

June 27, 2013

Men are frequently frustrated by women’s ability to tell subtle differences in color: peach vs. apricot, pink vs. rose, etc.

Well, my sister just sent me a You-Tube video of a mantis shrimp. These little guys can see twelve wavelengths of light, where humans can only see three.

Good thing they aren’t home-builders. Can you imagine the decorating discussions?
