Spring Blossom

Here I filmed a time lapse video of the sex organs of an Amaryllis (its flower) in bloom over the course of a week.  I shot it on my Canon 7D using a timed shutter release of 8 minutes per frame.  I love how we can use technology to see motion where otherwise we would see none.  This shows that plants and other natural processes happen just the same as things on our time scale, only at their own pace.  Perhaps we can start to see our own reality not as the best or only way of viewing the world, but rather one on a wide spectrum of different ways to experience the cosmos.
