    What an extraoridnary flower, just mind blowing different and special! I understand why you made Aliens have landed because this flower is so truly alien and so beautiful! Great shot, exccellent focus and clarity, love how this flower has so many unusual components!

  • Thanks for the great comment, Joanne! There may be stranger flowers out there, but I haven’t seen one yet. :)

    What an incredible looking flower…..so very unique and the clarity you have achieved is fabulous… I like the alien version also and your processing is so not you…made me laugh…great work – both the non-Allien and the Alien…

  • Thanks very much, Katherine! This is only one variety of passion flower, and each is wildly different from the next (although all are relatively strange). As for the processing of the “alien” version, I am always trying new things, and sometimes the challenges here cause me to stretch and experiment, which I count as a very good thing about being part of Redbubble.
