Must be a ladies Shaving Brush, for the colour, Carol..!
It is a beautiful colour and most unusual (to me), can't help with the real name, sorry.
I love the detail, especially V3, with the bee nectaring.
A super trio...!

My goodness...three STUNNING shots, Carol. Love the carpenter bee Grin

Very pretty flower...looks like some sort of pea or bean flower, doesn't it? Must show it to my mum...see if she knows.

V2 is an awesome shot of it SmileSmile

You are so lucky Carol to have these beautiful flowers so late in the year. The light and colours in V1 and V2 are superb. A good photo of the bee too.

Whilst in Malta, I captured an image of this flower with one of those bees and have never put it up as I could not ID either flower or bee!!
Excellent detail in this dainty flower.Smile
