19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Pink peonies with an ant on a petal.

The photograph I captured is of pink peonies that my great-grandmother planted in her garden. On the peony in the front, there is a black ant crawling on the petals, making the picture come more alive with the nature of the peony. I look at these flowers in a special way because they are a part of my great-grandmother and what she left behind for people to admire.
