This was a somewhat risky photo. I was aiming blindly (the flower is only about 3" tall) and I got a little more of the sun than I planned. That's a good way to destroy a camera's sensor. But the dramatic result made the risk worthwhile. Note the delicate spiderweb connecting two of the petals and the glowing "hairs" on the stem. Photo taken in Midland, Texas.
