The Amaryllis is showing signs of senescence while the reproductive process carries on;  the Amaryllis is both dying & reproducing at the same time. The petals are wrinkling & subtly changing colour, while the stigma opens up like a small flower to accept & transport the pollen to the ovule.

'Senescence' as a photographic series explores the life cycle of an Amaryllis (Hippeastrum), from bloom, to reproduction, wilting & finally death. -- 'Senescence' captures in 25 photographs, the process of life, reproduction, death & decay before new growth & is told through expressive, abstract photography that chronicles the life & death of an Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) in an intimate & poetic study. -- Senescence as a scientific term describes biological aging, the deterioration of functional characteristics & the cessation of cellular division & growth. In short, senescence is the process of functional deterioration with age & dying. -- The descriptions in this series are based on my own observations & mixed with personal, armchair research I have done on the Amaryllis (Hippeastrum) & senescence. I accept that my information may be off or misguided. Please feel free to add to or correct any of this information.
