An Angel's Trumpet Bloomeidoscope for Friday's Flower
Happy weekend all!
Strobist Info: I used the Nikon R1C1 macro flash system. Two flashes were used, one held off camera behind the flower to give it that light from within look. And the dew is authentic rain drops from a just passed shower. ;-)
Flora Info: These unique flowers are pollinated by hummingbirds and Sphinx moths. Native to the subtropical regions of South America, Angel's Trumpet flower is quite toxic and is related to sacred datura in the deadly nightshade family. If we had kids we might not grow them since all parts of Brugmansia plants contain dangerous levels of poison. Contact with the eyes can cause pupil dilation (mydriasis) or unequal pupil size. In other words, use caution!
