Escape Plan

Nothing says 'Nature' like a good flower. Granted, the picture isn't focused on one whole flower, but rather two small pieces that look as though they are trying to escape together. The idea of the two small pieces trying to fly away together just seemed so incredibly cute that I couldn't let it be. Anyone looking at this picture, I'm sure, could create hundreds of different stories in their own minds as to why they look as though they are trying to escape the larger group, and that is exactly what draws me to this photography.
