Flower Petal

Shown below is a picture of a typical flower petal that can be commonly found. By the naked eye, the petal appears to be a solid pink; however, when we take a closer look through a microscope, we find much more. Instead of being a solid color, we observe a kaleidoscope-like pattern consisting of intricate details. Flowers are often described as being beautiful, but many truly have no idea how beautiful they are on the inside.

This pink petal was simply picked off a flower and secured onto a microscope slide.

    This is really beautiful! Do you know what type of flower it was? Maybe you can include a picture of the whole flower as well?
