19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Starting UFO

This decontextualized work makes me think of the bottom of a UFO preparing to fly. I think the viewer, seeing only a part of the subject outside his environment, will ask the question, what is it really? This is the bottom of a parasite fungus on a tree with some transparent drops below, shot in close-up.
