Unknown Beauty

By geniehawk
Sorry to have clicked and run lately, but with epz being problematic and a new system at work, things have not been running to smoothly. Hopefully the worse is over now and I can get back to normal. I was given this flower in a bouquet recently I would like to know what it is, can anyone help please?
Thanks for all your comments & clicks on my last uploads, very much appreciated.

It's a cockscomb, Jeannie. Haven't seen one with accompanying leaves, so it's great to see it in the natural. Beautiful lighting and focus work.
