Our photo of the day is a small floral wonder. With the floral clamor that can come with a meadow or garden, sometimes it is easy to miss the little moments happening within, like this one photographed by Jenn Faber. I mean, when was the last time you really studied a cosmos bloom, with its beautiful color and those delicate zig-zag petals? Isn't it pretty?
