Nature photography has always been on the top of my shooting wish list. I choose flower for today's nature theme.
I'll quote Rabindranath Tagore for his beautiful words on flowers:
Pluck this little flower and take it, delay not!
I fear lest it droop and drop into the dust.
I may not find a place in thy garland,
but honour it with a touch of pain
from thy hand and pluck it.
I fear lest the day end before I am aware,
and the time of offering go by.
Though its colour be not deep
and its smell be faint,
Use this flower in thy service
and pluck it while there is time.
by: Rabindranath Tagore
