Cicada Treeflower. botanical mandala
Cicada Treeflower
This botanical mandala, created from begonia foliage, reminded me of a green sunflower. I was inspired to include the silhouette of a lovely maple tree that I photographed last winter. Then I noticed that it seemed to be ringed by a series of winged insects, perhaps cicadas.
One of the fun aspects of creating mandalas is the serendipity. Like a Rorschach ink blot, fantastic images seem to appear from time to time.
