One Bare Light Bulb and a Bit of Nature

Not long ago I photographed this seedpod in the wild.  I brought it home to photograph it in a more controlled environment.  I have no lighting equipment whatsoever but over time I have become
fairly good at using bare light bulbs and pieces of cloth as diffusers.  This was shot on the floor using one 60 watt light bulb to illuminate it from the side and above.  I wanted to enhance the ridges
of the seedpod itself and yes, this is the actual color of the thing.  The bright color is what struck me about this seedpod the most.  The entire time I was shooting this, Jack, my cat, who seems
to have an interest in photography, was watching everything I did and occasionally adjusting the post ion of the seedpod with his paw.
