Nature's Transparent Beauty...

Another example of Nature's exquisite beauty.
The Diphylleia Grayi known as The Skeleton Flower because the white petals of this plant become transparent on contact with water.
A light shower of rain will cause the delicate blooms that are found growing on moist, wooded mountainsides in the colder regions of China
and Japan to become as clear as glass...
