I keep coming back to this photo, just to stare at it. It represents different things each time I look at it.
Feathers, little fuzzy caterpillars in perfect formation. And the center draws me in. I so love this photo.

Lynn, I can see it like a fountain of mealy bugs all streaming out in formation. The plant is small enough that I actually can't see anywhere near this level of detail with my naked eye, only with the aid of a camera. But it sure is photogenic! Thumbs up
