Theophrastus named the plant "tragopogon ', that means "goat's beard" in Greek.
This is a medium to tall, hairless biennial, with an erect stem, usually branched, to 1.2m (approx. 4ft), though often less, broadening below the flower heads. Leaves are broad, linear, widened at the base. Flower heads are lilac to dull reddish-purple, between 25 and 48mm (1 – 2in). Flower bracts are, often, 8, equalling or slightly longer than the rays.

Merhaba Tarik!
Welcome on TN!
Simple, elegant composition, with great contrast between the dark BG and the purple flower, which is illuminated by a nice light.
Perfect focus and great details of the heart of the flower.
ciao! Vanda

Nice colour on the petals. spiky leaves add symmetry to the composition. Dark BG makes the flower stand out.

Excellent close-up photo of this beautiful flower

Hallo Tarik
What a beautiful image! What a beautiful and most extraordinary flower and what an artistic presentation.
I like this image very much, it is very basic, yet it has such a lot of magnetism to it. Thanks for sharing a wonderful image, presented in style.
Best regards.
