Work Description

These flowers, prevalent in North America, stand as witnesses to the evolution of life. The birds and bats that once pollinated these plants have become extinct due to various reasons. These flowers adapted by developing purple hues since these animals were more sensitive to that colour, facilitating pollination. Although the pollinators and dispersers have long disappeared, the flowers still grace the skies. Like a trumpet playing the pilot's tune, they await the return of the unreturnable.
