I want to improve on that shot. This was an improvement on its predecessor from a very cheap camera. Now I must try one with SLR. The plant is not in my yard at present... lots of them in our work campus. Thanks for this, Kell.

I can't wait to see your next shot of it, Dinu. I just love it.

It'll take time as I don't carry my camera [now without pocket Sony W120 - gone kaput :(]. But I like that flower. Each time I walk past it, I get the urge to bend down and take a picture!! But I end up touching the leaves [like a child] with the feet, watch the leaves fold and walk away! I am sure we all get so childlike when we see this unique plant! It is also a medicinal plant.

I had no idea it had such a pretty flower until I saw your picture. So nice.
