A neighbor gave us this Amaryllis plant for the holidays and it's been sitting on the kitchen table ever since.

Tonight, after I finished with dinner, I turned off the lights as I was leaving the kitchen, but accidentally missed the one over the kitchen table. When I turned around to see where the light in the kitchen was coming from, I saw this scene.

Although I am not even remotely a macro or flower photographer, I couldn't resist trying my hand at capturing this scene. So I grabbed a camera that was handy and took this photo, which I think turned out surprisingly well.

But what do I know, eh?
