15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Garden Peony

The peonies in the garden were at their peak, standing tall, their petals wore the most beautiful ball gown one could wear. After a gloomy morning, the sun broke out bathing the peonies in a golden glow that highlighted their delicately ruffled petals. No princess or queen has ever been so elegantly clothed than the peonies that morning.
