You know how it is when you first become aware of something new? Like noticing an actress and then seeing her in a film you've seen before, but had a lesser awareness previously. Or, hearing about a person, idea or concept and then hearing about it over and over in a short span of time. Or, seeing a colony of Pectinella magnifica in a lake and then noticing a similar colony in another lake. After documenting my encounter with bryozoans at Table Rock Lake, I saw another bryozoan colony, or what remained of it at Kentucky Lake. Eerie. If I had not seen the gelatinous masses on the shore, I would have walked right by this one.
