Unusual flower! (yes, it is a flower - rather, flowerhead)

That is really cool Raghu, it looks like basket weaving.

Thanks, JJ. If you look carefully, you could see that I had titled it 'basket flower', as I did not know the name of this flower at the time of processing the photograph!

Nice images, Raghu. Looks like a light-colored pine cone in that last shot.

Interesting flower... are those petals fragile or hard? They look like armored protection

Thank you Gary, Marques and Alex. Marques - the flowerhead is thick and soft, has a rubberish feel. Today I saw small flowers sprouting out of that (though it was kept in a sponge-watered flower basket, cut away from the plant!) which looks more like the ones you see as the petals wear off the banana flower.
