These had the look of a "Herman photo" and indeed they are. Great images Herman. A flower I have never seen before---nothing even close. How extraordinary, at least to me.

Two great captures with good light and background which makes V1 stand out. Well done Herman.

Two excellent shots of this beaut, Herman, especially the one in V1.

I like Proteas. They don't grow here (I don't think) but I sometimes see them as cut flowers in florists.
