18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
A Pink Zinnia in Distress

In snapping this threesome, I noticed the center of the pink zinnia had been eaten by a bug. To restore color & vitality to the pretty pink zinnia, I plucked a tiny marigold bloom to be the new center. Intervention was a success--the host & marigold thrived for weeks on end!
