Love this PoV with plants - I feel it might be how they see themselves - I doubt they bother looking down !

I admire this point of view....I can see how early craftsmen got their pattern ideas for their beautiful handmade quilts. I've seen this pattern used. A marvelous shot.
We have the Tour de France set to record. My French husband and I LOVE to see the cities and countryside. :)
