This one I saw late last year was the size of a beagle and strobing rainbow colours. Awesome to watch

Outstanding photos! Amazing colors those little creatures are capable of producing. WOW!

As you well suspect, most are added to my desktop photos folder which holds almost 5,000 images in rotation.

I use a Windows program called John's Background Switcher to cycle through them. Is free and also available for Mac.
