Sorry to disappoint...I know it's a flower and not a shot of the Universe at the moment of conception but it kind of came out looking like it when I tried to bring out the flower rather from the background. I haven't a clue as to what this flower is called, and it might be a bit unrecognizable in it's present state...but I am sure someone will tell me. Nonetheless, hope you like it! Smile

Humble gratitude to all those who commented and voted on my last image...many blessings on your head! Smile

Great shot Loren, looks like an onion or chive head after flowering, but then it could be the universe expanding Grin ... Carol

Not sure it is an Allium which tend I believe ( i stand to be corrected) to be single stemmed. As for vote got it, it's a bit weird today, just looked at portfolio and saw your comment was posted 30 mins before I posted image!!! Now your doing time travel Sis! LOL I just can't keep up with you! Smile

A beautiful flower against a dark BG can't fail. You have created a beautiful image.
The flower is an astrantia, not sure which variety though.

Looks like an Astrantia to me but need to see the leaves to be sure.
