In my enthusiasm to photograph this flower in the best possible light as it was high above my head and I was shooting against the sky, I pulled the branch towards me get better shots. Suddenly the flower dropped onto the floor. I was stunned for a moment and did not know what to do except to pick it up. But when I did, the flower fell apart. So I decided to make the best of the situation and stuck the parts onto my lily plant so that I could take close-ups of it.
