There is a Black Hole forming there. Stand at least 20 yards back, Dulcie, and do not wear yellow.

This image made me look longer to figure it out--good for you! I like the unusual look you achieved. I think the striking sunflower would stand out more is some of the clutter in the background were cloned out.
