What is this???


Little alien faces can appear out of nowhere, no? And to all those that think aliens don't exist, hah! Here is evidence!

Anyhow, macro photography can at times prove to be challenging for me. I often see something in my mind and I wish to capture it with photography. However, getting the camera to "see" what I see in my mind proves to be difficult at times. Sometimes I am fortunate and I get the settings just right and capture what I see. Other times, I am not so fortunate. When I am not so fortunate, I resort to trial and error and sometimes eventually figure it all out. Other times, well...

With regards to this picture, I struggled for a couple of days with this shot. My photography mentor took pity on me and figured out the proper settings to use and took this picture for me.

So, I pose to you, what is this??? Please post your answers in the comment section!

Picture was taken with my Nikon D-50 and 4+ diopter lens adapter. Photographic credits goes to Thomas.

I don't know, is it the inside of a flower? Whatever it is, it sure is gorgeous. You're getting really good at this photography thing.

Inner part of an orchid flower, the part that holds the pollen sacs for little bugs to unknowingly carry off. Funny alien face!

Yes, you guessed correct. It is a part on my phalaenopsis orchid! I also wanted to note that although the "alien face" was my idea, it was the skill of Thomas, my photography mentor that brought the idea to fruition by taking the photograph that I was struggling with.
