Who Will Blink First?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 3 July 2009 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Between you and the flower, I think the flower will win this stare down. If you should be fortunate enough to know the name of this flower, could you please share? Photo taken at the Chicago Botanic Gardens on May 17, 2009.

SONY DSLR-A300 1/1250 second F/5.6 ISO 100 52 mm (35mm equiv.)
