Fantastic, I don't think I have ever seen one of these before. I love how nature gives flowers such an intricate design.

Chris, that bloom looks like the sheen of ribbon candy. Great shot.

What an interesting little flower. Is it a vine? With heart-shaped leaves? Flower, vine, heart-shaped leaves is a wonderful trilogy.

The stripes from the five points of the petal make me wish I were a raindrop deep inside that blossom.

Beautiful and unusual flower. It has a very modernist quality to it.

this is truly beautiful! it looks like a paintbrush was dipped into the centre and pulled out towards the tips.

i don't blame you for the watermarks... it's a shame it has to be done.

i often blog about my garden and flowers, and try and learn more about what exactly is in there. thanks so much for dropping by my ww photo. it was fun to participate :)
