Challenge has finished
Show us examples of flowers, in nature, which hold their heads down, rather than up to the sunlight. You may enter photos of a single flower or multiples, looking straight at the flowers, or from below, peering inside them to see their inner secrets. Where possible, the flowers should be outside in the natural environment. Please, NO flowers in vases or dried arrangements. Macro and close-up shots welcome. Size, 1,600px MAXIMUM
