Photo date: October 14, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.
Below is a photo I took while
photographing nothing but ordinary pure, clean water drops falling
against a dark background. We see two examples of the strange things I call orb veils. The bottom one has two strange stripes. The top one (which has a kind of folded look to it) also has a stripe. I have photographed more than 150 mysterious orbs with stripes, but I also sometimes get stripes on these wispy orb veils (you can see 13 examples here). The bottom object had an apparent width of about 4 inches.
