I mostly like simple things in my photos. Life is complicated enough already and I have urges to remove stuff and simplify. This flower was taken normally, against a white background and backlit with natural light, but the processing revealed the birdlike head, wings and tail. The white markings are dark parches on the petals which changed to white when the image was inverted. Amazing what you can see when you remove colour and tinker with a few sliders. I think this simple little bloom looks more like a bird than a flower now.
