Daily Prompt: Moved to Tears

dsc_7665-e_wToday, the Daily Prompt ask photographers to show beauty. But, what is beauty? Is there a general definition, what is beautiful and what is ugly? Doesn’t this depend on the eye of the viewer?

My first intention was, to show a photo of a fledgling of an moorhen. These young birds are really ugly with their bald spots and ugly color combinations in skin, feather and pecker, but what would their mother describe them? Would she also say, their kids were ugly?

On the other hand: think of the fairy tale of the ugly duckling, told by Hans Christian Andersen. An duckling slipping in the wrong nest. Thus, being gray instead of yellow and bigger then his siblings. But, later in time, when he began to be an adult, the ugly duckling turned to be a pride swan.
