Tiny Wildflower

Table Mountain really represents this interesting dichotomy.   When you're there it feels so large and open, and yet everything that was happening there was happening on this tiny scale.  To photograph the flowers I had to use my closeup filter, and get on my hands and knees.  And because of the vernal pools and general mushiness of the ground, I did the whole walk with wet spots at the knees of my jeans.  When I photographed this flower I didn't even see the little spider until I looked in my camera display!  Such an amazing microscopic world!
