15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Queñina WildFlower

It is with the utmost respect that I submit this photograph to you. Mu purpose is to share the greatness and majestic grace with which such a small flower (the size of my pinky nail) can overcome the uncertainty of the earth's elements and remain fearless. She teaches us resilience, compassion, and the appreciation of beauty in all places, including those we often fail to recognize.
