Reason For Making the Image On one of my Wildflower workshops at Washington on the Brazos State Park, we photographed a large patch of blue color flowers. I remembered for the assignment and I started to look the flowers differently. Using my old makro Killar lens braced with a strong diopter lens, I laid down to the flowers placing them against the green grass background and looked for a special angle, when one of the flowers hairy leaf looked like a green flower petal but showing the other flower’s stamens as its own.
