Post Challenge(Now I'm a member I can edit!):

It's a 74LS14 Hex Schmidt Trigger Inverter sitting in a Banksia flower, lit overhead by a 430EX with a Stofen.

I really like how the flower petals look like they're inspecting this hi-tech foreign intruder. I also didn't notice the little green eyes on the IC until I uploaded the pictures.

Thank you all for your comments and votes!

very nicely controlled reds in a difficult situation with low contrast, high saturation color.

To my eye, I'm seeing a fair bit of oversharpening artifacts where the red meets the green.

My best guess is that these were introduced as a part of the resizing for web procedure. May I suggest using a bit of a mask on your sharpening layer, specifically on BG/bokeh areas and high contrast edges.

You know, I spent hours agonising over this challenge. Drove all over the country side trying to find something worth shooting, with no luck. I had bought my wife a native flower bouquet earlier, and I stood there looking at it one night, and thought I might as well do a "bugshot" :)

I really like how the flower petals look like they're inspecting this hi-tech foreign intruder. I also didn't notice the little green eyes on the IC until I uploaded the pictures.

Well, this is a very clever idea. Then I looked at the flower and thought it looks like a banksia or similar. Checked your profile - yep, it's something that could be in your backyard, or the Botanical Gardens.
