Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

The very word conjures up many impressions. Delicate. One imagines the finest materials, the most superb of art, and utmost precision. Websters tell us: marked by fineness of structure, workmanship, or texture. No matter how hard we try to imitate Nature, we’ll never reach the level of delicacy we find there.

Sometimes, the delicate symmetry lasts a few seconds only

Sometimes, delicate symmetry lasts a moment only

..and sometimes it defies the odds like this plover nest in the Kalahari

      Dankie! Ek dink my kennis van fotografie is nog te min om regtig die fyn detail vas te vang, en ek werk nog daaraan. Maar…die prag van Moeder Natuur bly maar iets wat my altyd verwonder..
