Although human subtlety makes a variety of inventions by different means to the same end, it will never devise an invention more beautiful, more simple, or more direct than does nature, because in her inventions nothing is lacking, and nothing is superfluous.

Aditi, Me too. Sometimes one just takes it all for granted, and it's nice to slow down and think of things like this.

Patricia, Rose, bindu, Katya, thanks so much!

Sharanya, thanks....I took this probably in April last year, but never got around to posting it on Flickr....did a different version there.
