Circus performer Yelena Larkina looks positively electric in this photo from the Big Apple Circus last weekend. Surely this is what a cloud of electrons twirling around a nucleus looks like, at least if atoms consisted of circus performers spinning a half dozen silver hula hoops.

This is my contribution to today’s Photo Friday theme, Electricity. You can see a photo-set from the Big Apple Circus here.
