I am a detail junkie. One of the joys of this project was giving myself permission to stop and look up close at anything that caught my eye. Among other things, I discovered how complex and beautiful seed heads are. I also began to wonder how it is for small mammals and other creatures who live permanently in what we think of as the detail of things. Is their world a scaled-down version of ours, or is their perception altogether different?
