You see that flower he's sitting on? I believe it to be called "Queen Anne's Lace." The petals are so tiny you can barely see them without squinting and yet you've managed to capture them in all their macro glory. Not to mention the bug. Thumbs Up!

Love the title, Ken! The beauty and delicateness of the flowers next to your, "Hovering Thing," really give this shot contrasting concepts. Super work, Ken!!! Smile! Daenna
