This tiny member of the pea family stands no more than 15mm tall and barely calls the eye to to look down upon it.
Yet in doing so, one is rewarded by a miracle of form in subtle pastel shading.
Gazing down, I am somehow reminded of the delicate miniature fancies so beloved of Victorian artists.
This diminutive still life is a reminder to me of how each thing has its place and time within the greater ecology of this mountain.
