Great shot of an interesting flower! I see how it gets its name. There is something about the coloring, especially against your blurred background that makes your shot look 3D. Even without the glasses, the flower seems to come out of my screen. Awesome shot!

"Please allow me to introduce myself.

I've been around for long long years, stole many a mans sole sealed his fate.
Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name."

The Rolling Stones are one of my most favorite groups. When I read the title of this post - well, I couldn't resist.

Exceptional clarity of this unusual flower, I have never seen the like.

The camera technique is superlative - all of the unopened blossoms are seen in high definition and absolutely tack sharp.

The colors are so rich and vibrant.

I like the inclusion of the two spikes in the back ground. that gives the piece character and pushes the main subject to the forefront of the viewers eye.

Lots of eye candy on display makes for a lot of initial visual impact.

Ya done good kiddo ... B-)) Bob

    LOL Now I am not at all surprised to hear you like the Stones dear OMP. They ARE and have been my favorite for years now. Have seen them twice in concert (last time in Montreal) and they put on the best show of any band I've love the way you started your review. Love the way you finished it too "Ya done good kiddo" LOL Kinda like everything in between too come to think of it. Power went out early today for Lord only knows what reason.....just popped on a little while ago so I decided to pop onto FAR before I shut down and THIS was a real treat to find my friend. Thank you for the big smile here and for putting the Stones in my mind tonight.

Comment from Minnie Kaye

These are really cool looking buds.
With that fuzzy green behind them, it makes them look like they are glowing or almost fluorescent.
Very interesting, kind of resembles a Caterpillar.
Great shot, thanks for sharing.

Comment from Monica Morrell

This is an awesome image and a great interesting plant for sure.
I love the vibrant green back ground and the red and yellow buds show so well against the tropical green.
I think this is an amazing flower and I hope you post a photo with the buds open.
Its is clear and so very well detailed.
A pleasure to view and I truly appreciate the education behind the beauty.
Well done!

Stunning, almost 3D in its appearance. Some might say it's a little too much, but I like the vividness of the this composition - not meant to be realistic, but rather to amaze. And, as I recall, I appreciate your notes very much!

    OMG Anne. It is forever since I've 'seen' you around! What a really nice surprise. How have you been?? Also surprisingly, you might be surprised how realistic this actually is. The colors are just as they are in my gardens. Definitely one of my very favorite flowers Anne and you are just a sweetheart for commenting on it and then giving it such an excellent rating. Thank you so much. Mostly though, let me know how you've been and what you've been up to.

    Wow! That is some garden! Yes, it's been awhile. I hit a wall with my old computer - couldn't put Lightroom on it - and I got busy with other life stuff. Finally bit the bullet and replaced my CPU, so I'm working on learning the new editing software. Next up, buy another lens. It's good to be back. I've missed the site and all the support.

    well I'm glad you bit the bullet! Missed you and very VERY glad to think you'll be around again.
Comment from karen zima

Wow! That is gorgeous and right from your garden. I bet you have a ton of good ones coming up. I love the way the flower pops off the page with the bold red against the contrasting green. There is a nice depth to this one with the muted background. Nice artistic framing and composition.

Wow I don't know much about photography as I'm a painter but I know I really think this photo is so beautiful and artistic. Love the vibrancy of the colours. Great composition in its simplicity. Wow! Amazing!
