    A lovely composition with the texture of the fern standing out from the smooth edges of the wood sorrel.

  • Thank you so much, Kathy. I liked the contrast in forms, too.

    The patterns and green color are great, the water droplets adds the extra twist.

  • Thank you, Steen. I lucked out that Mother Nature left just the right amount of dewdrops for me to discover. Cheers! :)
