Rotting Beauty

I think we sometimes overlook some beautiful things because we get the idea that beauty has to be a perfect rose or whatever. Here is something I consider beautiful that was taken in my backyard last year. At least the insects appreciated it's beauty. Yes, I know the focus could have been better.
Thanks for this Deborah, it truly follows the 'Everything Is Beautiful In It's Own Way' philosophy.
I agree with your assessment, Deborah. Decay is the natural part of the life cycle, so why should it be overlooked? :)

Yes, it's a touch OOF but not badly enough to ruin the shot. The colors are lovely, and I completely understand why you felt compelled to capture this moment. Nice work!
