it looks like someone took a brush and
painted the red lines onto the tulip.
perhaps it was the bee hiding inside?

It's like a burst of fire. It literally reaches off the screen and touches you with light. Amazing.

Another spectacular flower! Tulips are quite interesting. I learned that they are originally from Turkey, and the first documented stock market crash was with tulips, in Holland in February 1637...
