I went to the Herb garden in Kobe up on Roko mountain, I came upon this flower called "Ruritamaazari" in Japanese.

I hope you like the spike effects

Nuevamente bienvenido Daniel.
Una imagen diferente... muy bonita.
Bellos colores, profundidad aceptable, que permite ver la flor bien, sobre todo en el centro de la misma.
Bien hecho.
Me atreví a realizar un trabajo... espero sea de tu agrado.

Welcome again Daniel.
A different image... Very pretty.
Beautiful colors, acceptable depth, that allows to see the affluent flower, mainly in the center of the same one.
Well done.
I dared to make a workshop, I hope you like it.

A very unique compsition. The lines almost has a "trickery" to it if you move closer and further away. I like it. Interesting flower. 1st time seen by me. Thanx for sharing.

Nice though this image is,I have reason to believe that this is a cultivated/ garden plant, its called (Echinops ritro) The Globe Thistle and is more than likley to be the variety `Vietch's Blue`.I do not think it is native to japan according to my books to is from europe, Central Asia and India but not as far west as you are.
As such I would invite you to please move it to one of the other trek sites.
