This is a beautiful image!
Technically on a high level, and excellent composition and superb sidelighting. This, together with the OOF dark natural BG makes the flowers stand out well.
Though you don't mention it in your note, the flowers and leaves suggest that this T. amplexicaulis is a type of thistle, (Compositae), but I'm no botanist.
A fine image that deserves more credit and thanks for sharing it!
Bellissima immagine, ottimi POV e composizione con BG scuro che esalta i bellissimi colori dei fiori, buona nitidezza e splendida luce. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Tanks for showing a genus we do not have here.
Very nice lighting and colors.

A nice shot of these attractive flower heads, good and sharp.
Stunning macro from this very beatiful flower.
