Our dear sweet orchid Hobart has gone through a few phases in our time together. When we first got it there were only about five flowers on it, but over time that grew to about 8 total before some started to fall off.
This is one of those flowers just as it started to blossom. The shape and near symmetry make it look more like something out of Aliens than a flower.
This was taken with my 90mm macro lens, shooting at 1/250 and f18, with an ISO of 100.
