Magic is hiding in your garden.

The magic of photography is the camera's ability to capture what the naked eye cannot. And Craig P. Burrows's ultraviolet-induced visible fluorescence art couldn't prove that more. You see, the southern California-based artist uses a treatment you've probably seen before at a glow-in-the-dark party, but on plants.

"In the same way a tee-shirt glows under a black light, most organic material glows at least a little with UV stimulation and in all kinds of colors," Brurros told Bored Panda. What's most interesting is that no two plants look the same. Want proof? These are the stunning results of Burrows's unique art form.


Burrows first started using this style back in 2014, after being inspired by Oleksandr Holovachov's work. Since then, he's photographed hundreds of glowing plants, including this blanket flower.


He says he has a penchant for weird and surreal forms of light and we're happy he does, because the results look something like this. Doesn't the pollen on these petals look like pixie dust?

For the best, most unique results possible, Burrows says he tries to shoot in the darkest environment possible and uses a 365nm light so the camera can't see the UV light — and he rarely knows what to expect after taking a shot. For instance, this white calla lily turned a stunning pink.


Meanwhile, this mountain lilac looks essentially the same in terms of color, but with a unique glow.


It's amazing what a difference color makes in identifying a breed. For instance, would you have guessed this was a sunflower? It doesn't help that it looks like a glitter bomb went off on it (which we are obsessed with, for the record).

And the pollen on these flowers look like something from outer space.


This pair of plains coreopsis flowers prove that no matter the environment, ever flower is different. How else can you explain why one of them looks like a skeleton, while the other reveals only a few spots of light.


This camellia is one of the brightest fluorescing flowers Burrows has worked with and almost looks like it glows from within.

Another perk of this style? Burrows doesn't have to travel far to capture this stunning nature sensation. He just takes his camera around his neighborhood.


That just goes to show that there's beauty in everything, even if you don't notice it at first sight.
