 Whether one is an avid and professed flower enthusiast or someone who's just interested in flower gifts, a Los Angeles-based artist has recently come up with a way to take pictures of beautiful buds that is sure to intrigue everyone.

Photographer David Leaser has utilized NASA technology - the same used on Mars - to take super-enhanced photographs of different flowers. "When you see these large canvases, you literally get a bees-eye view into the flower. You will see things you normally wouldn’t even notice, like the tiny hairs on [orchids]," Leaser said in a statement.

He explained that he was initially inspired to do the project during a trip to the Amazon. While he was impressed by all of the scenery in front of him, he couldn't help but be drawn to the bright beauty of the small flowers on the forest floor.

The collection of his pictures is called Nightflowers and will be on display in New York City on March 17 at the 10th Anniversary Home Design Show.

The show itself will feature over 300 different exhibits, design seminars and cooking demonstrations conducted by celebrity chefs.
