Hello Albert,
A very sharp and well exposed capture of this amazing plant.
At first,I thought it might be a type of fungi,but I see now that it is a flower of what looks like some kind of cacti or succulent.
I'll have to look it up to find out a bit more about it.
Cheers & TFS

Another gem from your collection, Albert.
By using tripod, you have captured a macro picture of extreme precion and resultant beauty. The very subtle colours and patterns on the flower are beautifully recorded and presented.
Well done and thanks for sharing this remarkable creation.

Bonjour Albert,
Tu nous présentes une collection tout à fait étonnante de plantes qui semblent provenir d'un autre monde. Pour nous c'est extrêmement intéressant. Belle netteté et lumière, j'aurais éventuellement choisi un cadrage un peu plus serré.
Bonne fin de semaine

amazing species, TFS Ori

Hallo Albert
This is just beautiful. The colours are warm and rich and the details are stunning. Although you mention that this flower can be seen in South-Africa, I have never come across something so delightful in all the times that we visited Mpumalanga. It sure has a great attraction to it, and the hugeness of the flower makes it more pretty. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Bonjour Albert,
Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
