Sheens of oil atop the Gulf of Mexico have become a depressingly familiar sight — the result of reckless drilling by the oil and gas industry. Here is a photograph shot Wednesday of the latest such debacle.

This photo is one of a series taken during a flight over the site by On Wings of Care, an environmental nonprofit.
