A little break from the beehive landscape along the Piccaninny Trail in Purnululu National Park.
This flower was growing on the banks of the dry river bed. Thanks to Prabhusinha who recognised the flower as “Makal” a flower growing also in India.
Now I can officially say that this flower is a Hodgsonia (Hodgsonia heteroclita) which is a small genus of fruit-bearing vines in the family Cucurbitaceae.
A huge thank you to Prabhusinha.
