Could be an extreme close up of an iris. That is the coloured but round the pupil not the plant.

It's a satellite image of a very well known geographical area in the Western US. It's colored using polarimetry.

Darn, I was going to guess that it might be a satellite image, but I couldn't account for the colors. It must be an IR image?

Edit: sorry, got it, polarimetry

Nope.

That picture is REALLY tough, this next one of the same place might be easier.
