> A domed umbel of Queen Anne's Lace acts as a curtain, screening my hand.
I wanted to capture the 'drop of blood', the dark florets in the center of this umbel, but its stalk was so tall that I had to reorient the bloom before I took the picture. My first impulse was to discard the shot, because of my hand. But I decided to keep it as a reminder of the moment.
