    Alternately, you could call this one bubblicious (-;

    Seriously, there is some serious bubble action going on here; the longer you look, the more bubbles you find. It seems pretty clear that gas is being compressed between the bubbles & I would expect some real core-collapse action to be happening either now or in the near future. Note also the pillar in the upper left corner near the big FRO. Wish I had more context for this picture; there's even more happening out of view in the upper right.

    Also interesting is the faded bubbles on the bottom. No obvious star candidates there, you wonder what exactly went on, or if those are really bubble remnants at all or just chance gas filaments.
