Invasion of the Orchids

So I brought home a beautiful orchid to paint. I decided to paint a closeup, frontal view of it. But after hours of working at it, all I could think of was the freaky alien from the movie Predator. Is it just me, or is there a strong resemblance. Well, it ruined it for me and I had to completely give up on the painting. (This is probably more than I should reveal about myself.)
Well, I'm on to dalia buds. Please don't tell me if dalia buds elicit any scary images for you.

I never ever thought of it in this way but once I looked at your pictures, I certainly could see a resemblance----and it's very, very scary!

Okay, happy thoughts, I must think happy thoughts (or I'll have nightmares tonight)...yes, happy thoughts...

Oh no! There is definately a resemblance.

I'm relieved to know I am not the only one that "sees" that kind of thing.

I think dahlias are a very safe alternative.
