They are missing their stems, yes. Poor little daisies. ;)
And I'm not even going to mention to you what happened next, after picture taking was completed. Okay ... maybe a hint... Petals were made into tiny boats and ants got free rides down the gutter, via the hose river, to destination UNKNOWN.
This is another edit of a photograph I posted awhile back, only this time in high key black & white. I love all the options we have for processing black & whites!
