The photo was taken in my neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois (Edgewater). It shows the plant's pistil (the female portion in the center) and stamens (the male portion surrounding the pistil).a
The photo was taken with a Nikon Coolpix P7700 camera. Editing was done using ACDSee Ultimate 2019. I adjusted the Light EQ and increased the contrast and clarity. Then I adjusted the levels and the tone curves.
