A little break from the beehive landscape along the Piccaninny Trail in Purnululu National Park.

This flower was growing on the banks of the dry river bed. Thanks to Prabhusinha who recognised the flower as “Makal” a flower growing also in India.

Now I can officially say that this flower is a Hodgsonia (Hodgsonia heteroclita) which is a small genus of fruit-bearing vines in the family Cucurbitaceae.

A huge thank you to Prabhusinha.

A fantastic little flower beautiful in every way, good photo like it, I tend to look out for these tiny wild flowers; a lot outshine the large ones, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Its a wild flower, the fruits are not edible. In Bengal India we call it "Makal", Green while young, but turns beautiful Yellowish Red in ripen form.
