. . . even if you're flying solo."

Does anyone see the shape of a little bird with its beak and closed eyes in one of the Alstroemeria'a petals?

Spotted at the Lincoln Park Conservatory on February 25, 2018.

Ginnie Hart from Netherlands

I wish more had taken your advice, Steven!!! But, NO, I do not see the bird with closed eyes. Hmmmm. Actually, with a good imagination, yes.

I see it after you pointed it out! I thought what is he talking about and looked again, and there it was. This is beautiful.

You almost had me. I was looking at the plain petals and couldn't see a bird no matter how close or far away I'd take it in. So I sat back, closed my eyes, and looked again. Finally when looking at the correct petal, I saw it. And you're right, it really does look like a little bird, the beak is really what stands out now that I found it.

Now that you mention it, yes I do. A lovely flower.

I miss the bird as well, lovely bloom though. It might work better as a square

I see, because Steve said what to look for. Because otherwise, I don't think I would see the "bird".

Excellent level of detail. The focus point is perfect.

Oui, je le vois le petit oiseau : à droite, au milieu ! :)
