Weekly Photo Challenge: dialogue

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

Look closer and you will find them riddled with caterpillars. This one was particularly cute with his dusty pollen butt.

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?
