Heavy Metal Flower

This flower freaks me out… it’s the colour gradients on each petal, but especially those pointy things in the centre. I may have used flash on this because subsequent pictures of the same type of flower come out in a much darker blue. But they were also taken at a different time of year.

Technical Stuff: I may have used flash. Maybe not. It’s probably important to keep track of that kind of thing.

I found this on the front lawn of someone who hadn’t mowed their grass in a few weeks. So someone obviously thought this thing was a weed. The stalk was only a few inches long… crap that thing freaks me out. The longer you stare at the centre the more it looks like it was drawn to be in the movie Heavy Metal.
