Ian said: "Over the last year or so I have been experimenting with novel approaches to photographing flowers, both wild and garden plants. This 'Worm's-eye View' of corn marigolds was one such experiment where I wanted to contrast the yellow flowers against the clear blue sky and pick out the detail of the underside of the flowers which most people never see. The extreme wide angle lens I used for this photograph is fast becoming my favourite for botanical photography and adds impact to the composition."
