This is a rework of a photograph of the back side of two datura flowers after a rain. I brought out the natural texture of the flowers and then added a texture to the background to make the flowers stand out more. The plant is sometimes called Jimson Weed and grows “wild” in our yard. They bloom at night and attract Sphinx moths. The caterpillars of this moth eat datura leaves, which are poisonous to humans and livestock.

The early spring flowers are now in bloom. The blubonnets are past their prime. Here’s a garden flower, a yellow columbine. I’ve processed it with a Photoshop plugin called Fractalius to help bring out its structure.

These lilies are orange, almost red, and in infrared they come out almost transparent looking. Nate’s House, Waldoboro, Maine
