Loving The Wild Ones
"None can have a healthy love for flowers unless he loves the wild ones." —Forbes Watson
Loving flowers and blooms is to accept them in the rawness and manners in which you find them, and not some manicured display that we so often present to the world -- which is why I love wildflowers. And with that love comes enjoying the uncommon views, angles, and sides, which are just as intricate of a miracle as looking down the front of bloom, its stamin, and the pollen waiting to be abused my nature's workers. In this image, I've focused not on on the front of the bloom, but rather its backside, for the pattern displayed here is just as precise and as miraculous as the front.
