IMAGES OF SMALL THINGS FROM THE BIGGEST COUNTY IN TEXAS #726 – ONE SMALL SLICE!

I stumbled across this one of several horse crippler cacti beginning to bloom, starting the process of producing fruit. I am always amazed at the beauty that such prickly plants can produce.

I watched a piece on time lapse specialist Louie Schwartzberg this morning and I realized how much of a plants life I am missing. I stop and steal a small increment of time, a short 1/250 of a second. Mr Schwartzberg has much more patience than me and spends months to produce a 1-2 minute production that shows so much more that most of us never take the time to see.

Take the ten minutes of time to see time and a sense of life that we all walk past and miss the wonder that Mr Scwartzberg has paused to see and record for us.
