Nigella Recto and Verso

Nigella Recto

Nigella Recto, photo by Harold Davis.

This is the front and back (recto above, and verso below) of a small flower with an incredibly complex structure, a Negilla. The common name, which should be said mit feeling, is Love-in-the-mist.

I had absolutely no idea of photographing this flower from the back. But after photographing the front from the top down, I turned the flower over and saw that underneath it was more colorful, and even more complex, than from the front.
