Two images that speak to each other. A similar thread so that they contribute to the context of the other?

Praying Mantis Series: Photo 1
The Centre of the Universe
Macro Series: Photo 3
The other day I was at home with the boys. They played in the front yard in the afternoon. While they did I took a few photos using my iPhone and a cheap macro attachment. This series are the photos I took.
Lens flares weren’t meant for this.
I was looking through a few photos I had taken a couple of weeks earlier and came across this photo of a gerbera. It was OK. Not great, but I started to edit it and realised part way through that it wasn’t really salvagable so in desperation before I completely gave up on it I started playing with filters. I decided it might be interesting to make the centre of the flower look as though it was opening to reveal something with a bright glow, aka. magical being or whatever you imagine. Fake lens flares can be fairly cringe worthy so I thought I would go with it by using the lens flare filter in a way that was obviously not natural. Its not something I do really, but it was a bit of fun and what better place to showcase how I amuse myself than on my blog!
What do you imagine might be revealed at the centre of the flower?
