BeautyScope 188: Kangaroo Paw

ghostly cicada shell 
clings to a kangaroo paw flower
the beast transformed amongst beauty

  6. This is a fantastic photo. I am still waiting for you coffee table book of photos and poems. I agree with Natalia that you are so inspiring and I too appreciate your visits to my blog and your wonderful unique personality. I enjoy the connection we have managed to make and I do so often feel like we get each other. I have never seen a cicada or its shell-very cool. xoxoxo
