14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Skin Deep

This photo always looked surprisingly soft and gentle to me, and believe me when I say that my hands were shaking when I took it, afraid that this tiny little thing would fly out and sting me. But the peacefulness of the picture I feel reflects nature quite well. A bug within a flower, he looks right at home doesn't he?
