Today I have something extra special to show you. Something extremely beautiful and delicate, and not without a tragic love story.
These are Venus Flower Baskets -They are seriously lovely to look at up close. You can see the amazing workmanship and love that has gone into producing such a glass like cocoon.Here's the story, click to see it bigger:If you look close, you can even see the claws left behind by the trapped parent shrimps.Terribly fragile, as I was photographing them, I unluckily had some small shards came off and stick into my hands and arms. So I'll be spending the next hour with tweezers pulling them out. Ouch!
