The puzzle is the wide expanse of what makes up our world. Sometimes larger than life in our limited human experience and sometimes much smaller than our imagination can conjure. In between can be found many levels for observation as we notice the various parts that make up the whole.
Yesterday I shared a raindrop that had clung to a lily stem. This image is a study of the construction of a purple pitcher plant flower (Sarracenia purpurea) seen on July 10 at Hawley Bog.
I found this side of the flower just as interesting as the front. It is the colorful bracts and gathered raindrops that immediately get our attention. But the subtle combination of the complementary red and green tones seen on the sepals enhanced by the rainy day light bring me the most pleasure.
