In Nature we often see animals, especially birds, who appear to develop beautiful plumage to attract a mate, but do those creatures actually feel enthralled and mesmerised by beauty as we do?
Humans appear to have slightly varying tastes as far as admiring beauty is concerned, particularly when it comes to other people, but we also have a lot in common when it comes to Nature's works of art.
Take for instance the following photos:
|The eye: One of Nature's masterpieces|
|The graceful elegance of a bird in flight|
|Nature's powerful pyrotechnic displays|
|Lilac snow and red sky: Paul Gauguin must have painted it|
|The sizzling, sensual Cheryl Cole - enchants most boys... and some girls|
I don't know about you lot, but all the images above evoke within me feelings of wonderment, awe, fascination, incredulity and astonishment.
Surely it's not just me...is it?
