a flower, Laguna Hills, California

Spring Quiver

"I had been at a park with my grandchildren, and while they played I noticed this unusual flower in a spring patch," says Robyn Gael Ellsworth, a member of our Your Shot community who was photographing in Laguna Hills, California. "The colors were bright and contrasting. I shot it from a few different angles, but its shape was best defined by taking it from above to show off its arrow-like details."
