The Perspective of Small

If you've thought about fairies, have you ever wondered about their perspective on the world? I imagine them to be quite small, perhaps no more than 5 or 6 inches at most. When I was out photographing my garden tonight, I stooped by one of the prettiest dandelion puffs I'd ever seen. It was quite large, about an inch and a half in diameter with fluff like wee feathers. Instinctively (because I love unusual perspectives),I stuck my camera below it to take a shot. What a surprise I had when I saw the result! I had not realised that the bottom "feathers" were dripping with rain water from the rains only an hour before. I thought to myself then...what a perfect shower head for a fairy this dandelion is! What do you think?
