Unlike the previous below posts like these two

this one is very different. Yet, the central thought remains the same:

I think aesthetic sense is a nuanced celebration of limitations of the human mind!

No one probably will like this image or like this image as much as the other two I posted above. I think the reason being, at the outset, the visual experience of this image probably will end up as, "so what?". There probably isn't a visual closure followed by an explicit space created for ready imagination. I think root cause of such a difficulty goes back to limitations of the human mind. Often, including this one, "to many things in the frame does not make sense". We often just need a few curves/lines and a couple of a blobs of colors and some contrast here and there for an image to be aesthetically appealing. I think such an aesthetic sense is limitation of the human mind!

If you care there is an yellow bittern too in the frame as part of the grass. One creation of the Nature feeds on another of the Nature. What was the need for so called ‘life’ on earth? Was such a design of the Nature inevitable? Did Nature had a choice or this question itself is meaningless? If I explore this path further I think 99% of the beauty of the Nature is not visual at all. I just need to start with any random crop of the Nature and ponder over it, just like this one! But then if we can’t decipher why think about it? Is there any truth beyond what we can comprehend? Probably there is! That goes back to Einstein-Tagore debate.

The thoughts behind this image are also related to some of my previous posts like these two below.

This also relates to my response to Adithya’s post

Agree with Einstein n you .. but still my limited mind says that the bittern makes this image!
