Cosmos Bud or Martian Lander

Warren, Connecticut. This bud contains a group of spectacular purple petals and the stamen sex organs of the cosmos flower and will open into something much larger than itself. Somehow this reminds me of the recent martian landers that land as a small pod and then unfold into complex machines with solar "petals."


Canon 5D, Canon 100mm f/2.8 Macro, ISO 100, f/2.8 at 1/50th of a second, tripod.
