Hello Albert,
You show a fine series of this family of flowering plants, each new image showing a fascinating flower with a striking pattern and shape, like this S. tongoboryensis taken from a fine POV with excellent sharpness. Once again the shape and colours suggest that the pollinators could be flies that are otherwise attracted to rotting meat.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Bonjour Albert,
Sur le thumbnail la fleur n'est pas très visible, mais en cliquant on découvre à nouveau une plante si spéciale et à la forme bien particulière. Etonnantes plantes de la Réunion!
Un grand merci

I admire this vessel-like specimen very much, Albert.
Very fine angle of exposure that presents this subject in three- dimensions. The dabs of colour on it are abstract and beautiful by virtue of it.
There is a perfect balance in this image and nothing seems to be out of place.
Well done anf thanks.

amazing flower, it looks like a cyclamen fruit, TFS Iri

Another fascinating plant. Mysterious colours and forms in a great composition. Excellent POV. I can almost smell them.

Hello Albert,
I always enjoy looking at your weird and wonderful exotic plants from the Reunion Is.
Is this one carnivorous or is it just designed to capture water?
Its an amazing specimen anyway.
Cheers & TFS
