Unknown flower from Crimean holidays. This one grew near house where we lived. About 40-50cm height with white flowers in shape of trumpets.
That was good time. First of all temperature was over 25C :-) Secondly - sunny and sea in sight. Last but not least - Crimea looked for me like Garden of Eden :-) I could walk with my cam all day and there was still too much to capture :-)

Sorry for short note, but I'm working now. If someone ID this flower I'll update note later.

Interesting plant Greg. What does the end of the flower look like? Good crisp clear shot. I love the title. Well done on a great job. TFS

Wonderful. I love Crimean's flowers. So sunny, so exotic... so holiday :-) I would like to spend this summer with you Mr Greg. What do you think? ;-)

very nice Grzegorz,
Yes very good composing shot, good details, it´s almost art you made with all those nice lines, I like the good colours too, very nice macro.

Razorsharp details, I can even see a string of a spiderweb very clearly in the leftop. Wonderful colors and I like the composition very much.

Greg, I can't really tell what this flower is without seeing more of the plant.I can see leaves below that look like hostas,but this is something else.If you have a more general view,put it in workshop.

Grzegorz, Very good sharpness & detail..Great title as the shot really does look like the spokes of a wheel with good impact. Great exposure - Well done!

Hi Grzegorz, It's a very interesting flower and I'm sorry but I have no idea as to it's ID. The colours and focus are great but I'm not sure about the composition. I think I'd prefer either closer in or further out with the flower head nearer the corner. Good work.

I stand in amazement Greg. This is absolute great. Very nice image. You handled the colours very well. Good work 10 out of 10.

I love the colour and sharpness in this shot Grzegorz revealing the textures well. Like Paul I'm not sure about composition the DOF has been handled well though. Well done.

beautiful plant Greg, clear and sharp detail, never see one like that before.. will be interesting to know what it is. good compo.

Very good colours, shapness and excellent radial composition. I find it very original Greg.
About work, here in Spain we say the following phrase:
