While hiking on a trail not far from the red mountain laurel, I discovered another flower that I had never seen before.  Luckily the subject in Black Rock Mountain Trillium was right next to the stairs and not too far from the trail head which made it easy to get to after returning to my car and gathering my gear.  I like the arcs and curls as well as the random sprinkling of color between the yellow strips of pollen on the stamen.  The high level of detail allows surface textures, individual hairs, and pieces of pollen to be seen.

The change of perspective in my Beckon piece makes the curls seem as if they are drawing you in or subtly calling out, asking you to come closer.  Their curvature creates a sense of pulling towards the center of the flower.  The high level of detail allows surface textures, individual hairs, and pieces of pollen to be seen here as well.
