    ...nearly every flower image posted around here looks the same?

    Seriously.

    Flowers cropped at the stem, showing little or no plant. Always filling the frame with the bloom facing right, or left.
    Then there's the centered top down view. *sigh*

    They all wind up droll, merely documentary images best used for identification illustration.


    C'mon! Where's the drama? Where's the excitement? Where's the creativity? Where's the beef?

    Because most of the time, we're just looking at the flower.

    but once in a while, the flower looks at US. Or something IN the flower does, anyway:
