Hi Carol and thanks for the comment.

As far as I know it aids digestion.

A superb macro shot. The clarity and detail is incredible but you've also pulled off a very pleasing composition and an unusual bubble blowing capture. Excellent.
Excellent capture
Top class macro with added interest. Cheers, Gary
