Wildflower

This is not a wildflower, despite the post title.
It is a plastic flower.
Realistic, but plastic.
Magnify and you will see.
The texture of the petals gives it away.

What was your first impression of the image?
Did the text spoil it for you?

It looked plastic without the text. The um, folds in the petals give it away. Also the ruffles in the yellow bit. Or maybe I haven't seen a lot of flowers.

Plastic. Perhaps I've seen too many flowers.

My first impression of the image was that the colors looked strange.

My first impression of the text was to wonder if it was a reference to Magritte.

That particular shade of fluorescent yellow, plus the texture. Always a giveaway.

Uff, Takai.
Turns out I was the only one who thought it was a flower at first sight. Maybe I've seen too few flowers.

I read the text first and saw the picture later. But it's definitely plastic. Not really realistic.

@Tommy: Not a conscious one, at any rate.

@Shrabasti: Be careful what you wish for.

@Pratiti: Me too. :)

@All: Thanks.

Without text it looks like Plastic, as the petals are in even size.
