Passion Flower

Posted by
Anita (West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, United States) on 29 September 2012 in Plant & Nature.

This is not a particularly good photo of the flower. I present it as a fun photo--I like all the color and shapes.
It is hard to believe that this exotic flower is a native of the Eastern USA.

The interesting flower structure together with the superb background and the unusual coloring make this a wonderful piece of art.

Well, I like it - the fuchsia against the deep cherry red bokeh background - a different color combination. That yellow stalk looks like a tiny carnival ride - for the fairies perhaps?

HOT! - first word which comes to mind. Masterfully done, Anita. The passion flower stands out nicely even against such a vivid background.
