Fingernail Lawns – A Tiny World

Flickr user Alice Bartlett cut some green flocking to fit on her fingernails and staged a little scene with miniature figurines. I love projects that play with scale like this. They make me ponder the tiny worlds that exist just beyond my range of vision. Because microscopic life actually DOES exist on your fingernail! (Though it turns out that the world of microorganisms doesn’t look like a 1/300 scale version of gramps and grandma hanging out in the backyard.)
