A possibly related phenomenon is called crown shyness – certain species of trees will very politely avoid overshadowing each other in a forest canopy, leaving gaps between each others' branches.
Mostly trees of the same species will do this, but different species of tree have been observed doing this too.
Again, no one's entirely sure how the trees do this, and some botanists are probably arguing about it somewhere right now.

"You don’t fix burnout by going on vacation. You don’t fix it through “life hacks,” like inbox zero, or by using a meditation app for five minutes in the morning, or doing Sunday meal prep for the entire family, or starting a bullet journal. You don’t fix it by reading a book on how to “unfu*k yourself.” You don’t fix it with vacation, or an adult coloring book, or “anxiety baking,” or the Pomodoro Technique, or overnight fucking oats." https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/annehelenpetersen/millennials-burnout-generation-debt-work
Wow, Reuters, 1984 was meant to be a warning, not an instruction manual, you absolute muppets.
Obviously you should caption images to help people with visual impairments, but here's some other reasons to do it:
⭐ If the site doesn't load properly an alt text description might make people interested enough to check it out later.
⭐ If you took a screenshot of text, it might not be readable on different devices depending on image format.
⭐ Writing descriptions forces you to think critically: what is important? If you struggle with promoting yourself/your art, this is low risk training!
