A Flower!!!!

By morpheus1955  
Another from the botanical gardens, as you may gather from the title I have no idea what it is, it just took my fancy, and as usual no tag to tell me wh t it is :-(.

Please look large if you have the time.

Thank you as always for all your C&C's very much appreciated.

Thanks for taking the time to look.

Good morning, Hugh.
I have no idea what it is either although I'm sure I have seen it many times. With the back lighting you have a very attractive image with the detail and petal textures so beautifully captured. Very nice work.

I feel it is impossible to remeber all flower names
So calling it a flower suits me fine
