Not a Wildflower

This is a greenhouse flower photographed against the dining room wall.  The light is coming from a diffused window to the left and a couple of feet away.  Diffused window light is a classic way to light people for photographs and paintings.  I took a photography course recently at a wildflower festival where the instructor said that photographing flowers is like taking a portrait.  It struck a chord with me so I tried portrait light on this flower.
