Poor composition, I know.

Any idea what this plant is?

It looks like an Osteospermum, an African Daisy :)

I was actually about to ask you what flower that is. : D
But I'm not sure if being slightly afraid of it was a good idea or totally unnecessary.

Being afraid of it?!

That's never the best response! :S

You got my meaning wrong. : D
It looks like something that a scientist would develop in some sci-fi movie. In the end the pretty little thing ends up ruining our evolution or something. o.o

Buying a book about flowers because of that would be a bad idea, right?
Where did you found it anyway? O.o

It was in a friends garden. I was just looking around and saw it. They never even saw it before!

I've got a book on flowers open now, but I'ev found nothing useful :(

It's a thing. That will do :)

I love the pastelly colours in this. I just wish I'd ya know, composed it better. Flower should be at the bottom of the pic, but the bokeh and such worked well enough for a feature.

Bleh rules are meant to be broken I like it where it is...but you could always change it lol...but really don't it looks fine where it is. And besides is the only think in the pic put it where you want it to be.

I agree. Most of my lecurers agree too, that composition and rule of thirds etc are just bullshit
But I would prefer the damn thing at the bottom

I like it because it has some truth. It's also misleading in some situations

I can’t swim. I can’t drive, either. I was going to learn to drive but then I thought, well, what if I crash into a lake?
