Interesting flower. It looks so different from the usual Chrysanthemum I see around here.

Looks like something that might eat you while you're taking its photo! Wonderful shot.

I can see how it might have gotten its name. The long strands are very interesting - would be cool to think of a human-sized structure like that.
