About Face (5a)

A couple of my blogging friends commented that the faces that I was seeing in our milkweed flowers and that I brought you in my last post were not that easy to pick out, so I went back out this morning with my newly-calibrated camera so I could try to make them more apparent. I made it there just before the wind picked up and hope these are clearer!

    Their face-like shapes are very obvious to me. especially eyes and ‘snout’. Doesn’t take much to see ears and some alien-shaped horns either.

      I’m happy to see that you are joining the majority here. I really should add a shot made from directly above one of the 5-petal clusters so it’s clearer what the whole looks like. It’s actually rather difficult to get enough DOF for the “face” to be apparent when shot from the side at intimate proximity. Maybe that’s part of the problem with visualization…

    It may be that I was predisposed to see a face because of the previous discussion, but there’s Lambchop, right there in that first photo. Even though I don’t see a face in the second photo, I think it might be my favorite. That silky pink smoothness reminds me of fine art glass.

    Well, I feel a bit dense! ;-) But please, don’t feel bad…I do like them the way they are!
