Who create, design and apply all these beauties and wonderful colors? and for who these things are created? how all these things are serving for humen?
Sorry I was in a rush, should have read all the comments, thank's Morgan Burton & Sandra Hickman for identifying it.
I was shure it was a Protea but could not place its name. "Pincushion Protea" (Leucospermum)
The Picture of the mystery flower is very nice, I love it, but I would appreciate if some of those who comment on it would also think on identifying it, so we can put a name to it.
I suspect it is a kind of Protea?????????
Help identifying it!!!!
A nice well composed shot. The flower is similar to the native grevillea species we have in Australia. Bees love them!
Leucospermum or Pincushion Protea, are great subjects for their contrasting colours and funky shape.
A truly great shot of a truly different kind of flower. Just dont forget the ant! Nature gives us all kinds of beauty to admire, and its needed for us to appreciate as much as we can with our eyes open, to take in some of the vast sights all around. Like this photographer did. Great work, Robyn. j.e.s..........
It defininately looks like our Pincushion Proteas here in South Africa. They are indigenous to the Eastern Cape and grow wild here. Really a beautiful protea but you do get them all over South Africa and do best normally in the dryer regions.
Looks like a Leucospernum sp. ("Pincushion flower"), which occurs in the Fynbos Floral Kingdom, Western Cape, South Africa, where I live.
