Available to buy on…

most cherries have 5 petals so i was very surprised and interested to find this beauty with 8. shot shallow dof to try to bring it out more and to soften the feel. shot in spring 2008 in the yard of my apartment in bellingham, wa, usa. i love the oddities like this that show the wonderful diversity and surprise in creation

    Great shot. Our cherries blossom in late August, because our seasons are topsy-turvy! I’ve never counted the petals, though!

  • i don’t usually count either but something about this one drew my eye and then i thought “aha!”
