The petals in this Arctotis bud look as though they've been woven together.

Beautiful! Reminds me of these flowers that grow in Alaska, but for the life of me, I cannot remember their names. The ants love being on the buds (like this shot) before they open. These are daisy-like when they open, which is nothing like what I'm talking about. Quite interesting.
I like the very transparent petal in the bottom left.
beautiful!! ... the colours are so incredibly rich! : )
