    Inspired by JohnG's shot...so credit goes to him.

    Looking closely at the Passion Flowers in my garden I was amazed by the unusual structure of the main flower. Removed a flower & trimmed leaves from back to accentuate the tentacles. Placed on a dark green plastic watering can to give contrast & lines of texture to lead eye to plant. Shot with Nikon D70 & 50mm 1.8 with fill in flash to allow me to use F8 to keep DOF decent.

    Tried using macro on 70-300mm SIgma, but gave up trying to handhold the beast ;)
