“Small and delicate does not infer weakness, there is tremendous resolve to flourish in even the most tender of things.” – Ed Lehming
I’m always intrigued by scenes like this, delicate flowers or leaves that have found a hole in a leaf and then pry the hole hider as they grow. There seems to be no stopping them.
In this case, a Bloodroot blossom is opened up after pushing its way through a maple leaf. It seemed to be a natural frame for the shot and the blossom is nearly perfectly formed, despite its captivity.
