Up Close and Personal with a Trillium


I have always thought the center of a trillium resembled a three legged octopus, with its swirling tentacles. I also liked how the petals of this wet trillium were almost transparent in places.

I had never thought about the similarity to an octopus, but you are right...
I also love the way petals of so many flowers become almost transparent when they are wet!!!

A marvelous macro shot of the trillium. Thank you for sharing this beauty with Today's Flowers. I've never thought of the similarity to octopus tentacles, but you're right, now I look closely I can see them.
