    I keep envisioning two forms of life from alien worlds meeting for the first time and how that encounter would unfold. Despite all the previous comments, there are no words that do this photo justice. All life is sacred and should be treated so. If all the people of this world would see the lesson of this photo, it would be a better place for all. Thank you for sharing it with us. In my opinion it is the best photo ever posted on Jpeg. I will remember it for a long long time.
