Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate

Sweetgrass is one of my favorite grasses in South Carolina. In the fall, the blooms turn a magnificent pink and look beautiful when they catch the sun. One early morning, I was out shooting close-ups and came upon a patch of dew covered Sweetgrass.

A rewarding morning capturing these delicate necklaces of fronds and dew.
