Flame Acanthus
1 Attachment(s)
This Texas native bush blooms profusely from early Summer until November. The flowers are about 40mm in length and attract all nectar lovers. I used my Minolta 50mm Macro and Sony A57 for this shot.

G'day mate

I very much like the vibrant colours of this image - it looks similar to one of our Aussie flowers, the Kangaroo Paw, which comes in any of 1/2-dozen colours too

I like the sharpness, DoF, and the exposure separation between the flower & its background ... well done :)

I'll second what Phil said, it does remind me of the Kangaroo Paw.

My thanks to my two mates down under and my fellow Texan.
