18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Blood Orange

This photo shows us a slice of a blood orange, a variation of the traditional orange found in Brazil. In the photo we can see a seed very close to the center of the fruit, which was once part of the flower. Both in physical and biological terms, this image alludes to the moment of fertilization and the formation of a new life.
