Que bella!

October 15, 2013 Photo of the day: "Que bella!"

"Beauty is mysterious as well as terrible."
~ Fyodor Dostoevsky

Isn't it curious how we can be attracted to things that aren't good for us? Why is it that I feel compelled to photograph this deadly plant, its berries and its blossoms? Yet, who could resist the beauty of these violet blossoms with their bright yellow centers and fresh green foliage laden with raindrops? Beauty is tempting, but knowledge is empowering!
