17th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Cycle of Life

I found a blooming daisy and a daisy that had gone to seed next to each other in my garden. This captured my attention because I found the dichotomy interesting. A few pieces of the dried seed head had landed on the petals of the blooming Gerbera Daisy. I liked the cycle of life theme that is exemplified. I used my Nikon 105mm to take the shot. I shot close in because I wanted an abstract feel for the final image.
