[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Just like a newborn baby, this fragile seedling is struggling for its life. A drop of water, a tiny sun light is what it needs.

I picked a clean, dark background to make the seedling significant. The left-top stuff is a big rock covered with moss. This shot was taken in a forest.

I should be careful not to stamp on it.
