It's amazing what comes out of these flips and blends. For example, you have created a giant red bug with a little white goatee beard. And I'm scared. Seriously, I'm going to have nightmares.

As to what your original photo contained...based upon how frightening it turned out, I'm going to guess that it is a fluffy little kitten.

Holy cow! Sweet. It does make me think of a garden at the end of the year.

I am identifying random objects on the photos, and yours reminded of King Julien's chair in Madagascar.
My guess for the original photo: anthuriums

Does seem a bit savage, doesn't it? Neat combo.

It's like some monstrous insect coming out of a field of wheat.

(I made that comment before seeing the title.)
