Default Light Reveals the Hidden

At first I thought it was a blemish or shadow on the leaf stem.
Looking closer, it moved. The flash revealed more.

I would have never seen that out in the wild, just makes me wonder how many amazing things that are out there that go unseen. Awesome capture.

I am constantly amazed at the small things in creation that we seldom see.
