From a bug's point of view, a flower can be almost blinding. Taken on a bright day with the sunlight streaming in from behind the flower. I love how the center looks a bit laser like.

No information on the settings.

I like it. It appears to be lit from within. #231183

Thank you both. I was looking at LOTS of flowers that day, trying to figure out a unique perspective on them. This one happened to be facing away from the sun enough that the contrast, and of course brightness, really stood out. #1220284
