I came across this agapanthus stalk lying on the ground; I don’t know if it was too heavy, or if the landscapers’ weedwacker cut into it enough for it to fall over. Yours truly got down on her belly to get this shot. I love how the triangular prism makes the flowers look almost as if they’re under water, while the crystal seahorse blurred out the upper left corner.
