11/25/09 - The 5th Day of Christmas (Cactuses)

From the camera, not Photoshop. The is a reflection made in a piece of silver Mylar. The only thing "real" (not a reflection) is the flower's stamens and pistil coming into the image from top center. The Mylar is on a table top and I'm shooting down. The end of the pistil is about 1/16" above the Mylar.
After you shoot macros, closeups and full view from the top, bottom, front, back and side it's hard to do much more without resorting to things like this - and there are still seven more days to go.
