14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Z-Flower

I took this shot because the flower bent its stalk not following geotropism nor phototropism. If it is under the influence of sunlight, the flower should be pointing upwards but it is not. The roots are geotropics but the flower? I have no idea why the stalk is bent like a Z.
