This photo was fun to make. I set up my camera timer at 10sec and waited till ~8 seconds to light the flower, but then everything went wrong and the whole place started to burn. I tried to blow air to stop the fire, and at the same time the camera took the photo, which was something I wasn't caring about then. When I saw the picture I realized it was a lucky shot.
