Beautiful flower mutation takes out the Photo of the Day
NO, this is not an act of trickery; this is an actual flower snapped in Naomi Pitkin's garden.
"(I) took this photo of my gerbera plant and I haven't used photoshop, this is how it grew," Naomi said.
This gorgeous and mind-bending image is today's Photo of the Day after receiving 57% of the votes in our poll.
Other fabulous entries came from Terry Stormon, Roseanne Birmingham, Naomi Blowes, Karin Taylor, and Diane Lymbury.
Photo of the Day is intended to celebrate the beauty of the Northern Rivers and the talent of the region's photographers.
As well as appearing here and in our extended gallery, it is used as the cover image on our Facebook page and appears in today's edition of The Northern Star.
