    I’ve never really paid much attention to tulip petals. These are absolutely beautiful. Every time I see such a striking design in a flower or insect, I wonder: why did that particular pattern develop? Why do they DO that? Maybe they just like being pretty, too!

    I like how the dust from the yellow bits(i forgot what they are called pistils or stamens) spreads across everything smooth and shiny and glazed.
