Brugmansia Batik

The more I look at this, the more mysterious it becomes--the one thing I know for sure is that it is a brugmansia blossom; it was on the sidewalk right under the tree, along with several others that had fallen. At first I thought someone had stepped on it and made this design, but as I study it, that doesn't really seem to be the tread from a shoe... Now I wish I'd picked it up and brought it home (how un-foziewispish of me)! It's kinda cool, yes?

And here is a bee inside a brugmansia flower on the same tree--the whole plant buzzes during the day as my beloved little bee girls work it! Go, girls, go!

Edited: Someone has opined that perhaps this is a bicycle tire tread? Hmm...
