This picture is one of many I've taken when at my parent's place with not much to do. The mix of free time and loads of photogenic plants and animals has led to many pictures.
I really liked this plant and wanted to get a picture of it, but for a worryingly long time I just got stuff that was a cluttered mess. Eventually I decided most of the plant and pretty much all of the background needed to go away. So, I switched to using a flash to light just the flowers. The flash is pretty low power, hand held just out of the frame at the bottom left and pointed over the plant so the edge of the beam catches the highest of the flowers.
