Yellow Spring Mystery Solved

Macro Mysteries Solved photography logo by Merry Hearts Medicine

Were you able to identify the subject of the mysterious photo from the last post?  Guesses have included flowers or bugs.  The object did come from the outdoors, but it didn’t come into our house in the condition you saw in the photo…


It was a common daffodil — altered with the help of a little food coloring.

We placed white roses in several vases of food coloring, as well; and I was surprised that they developed spots and splotches, rather than showing veins like the daffodil.  I think we will experiment with this again one day!

Thanks for reading!
