one of the greatest joys in life comes from appreciating the little details. to recognize beauty in every thing, big or small, round or square, there is always something that can catch your attention and spark your imagination. it is one of the reasons i love nature so much; it is full of little details. walking around outdoors in costa rica, there is a plethora of diversity that abounds at every step. behind some thick plant coverings, i found this young plant, just beginning to unfold itself, brimming with potential. small spaces between the leaves of the plants behind created these shafts of light which lit the scene perfectly for this sublime act of creation.
