13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Tiny Galaxy

The tiny flowers in this photograph remind me of a miniature galaxy full of life, color, and growth. When I think of the world, I cannot fathom how small we are in the great expanse of life. We live for a finite expanse of time, just as others have done before us. How will we be remembered? How will we compare? What makes us different?
