15th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
In this photograph, an ant walks the stem of a leaf in the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, California, USA. The ant’s small figure juxtaposed against the big green leaf emphasizes the microscopic beauty of garden plants – their rich, symmetrical textures, their vibrant colors, and the many processes of life that often occur unnoticed. I hope that this image inspires awe and new-found appreciation of nature’s beauty on all scales.
