Succulent of the 'Faucaria' family and a member of the Mesembryanthemum group.

Taken in my greenhouse today.
I love the long floppy petals that contrast with the fleshy barbed leaves.
The flowers are about 4 cms diameter.

Black card.
AP f18
Manual focus
200 ISO
Tripod.

I love the jaw-like leaves. At first glance, it looked like a flower sitting in an armchair !
Nice presentation, Brian.

Things are going quite well at the moment, many thanks for asking. (Apart from my credit card was compromised once again yesterday, so my account is frozen while my 4th new card in just over 12 months arrives. I'm starting to suspect that there may be a key-logger somewhere on my computer, despite having 2 firewalls, 2 spyware detector programs and an anti virus program all running at the same time).
