Taken at Longwood Gardens, Pennsylvania, USA, a few days ago. I was enchanted by the complex world in the center of this flower.

@Suzanne Labbé: Great idea!
Absolutely amazing photo! I have taken shots of many flower insides, but have never yet encountered so much
diversity and different colours.

@dobbino: Thank you. These were paraticluarly spectacular flowers when looked at closely, yet, at first glance they looked like ordinary zinnias.
wow! nice colors all together in a great compositio. I like contrast and details here.

Super image and very psychedelic, too! Who needs drugs when you can just look at this groovy picture? Love the detail.

I immediately thought of Latin America, where they love bright/contrasting colors like these. Wonderful the way the green of the leaves joins the palette. This is a keeper -- I agree that it would make a great focal point for a happy, sun-drenched room.
