This is the most unusual and pretty flower I have seen.
The darkness in the back sure highlights the details.Good to know the history of it.
Thanks for your comments too.

What an splendid dedication to Loot!
This is just great!
I'm amazed by the beauty of this flower, and your skills to bring it to us in such a sharp and clear image.
I'm so impressed by the detals got, your centered composition works great, with all that radial elements pointing out.
That mix of feather like whites with the red makes a brilliant combination.
My compliments and thanks for share it.

The shape of this flower is just amazing. All the little curls and all those smaller flowers poping out again. This is just wonderful. What I really find interesting is the fact that you can see how the smaller flowers grow. The top down composition really worked great. The colors and details are perfect.

That is an awesome shot! Beautiful color saturation and very sharp detail. Great light, and the darker backround is perfect for this shot. Nice one!

You are so generous and thoughtful MF and your timing is just perfect. This "bloom that radiates STRENGTH and HOPE" comes at the most appropriate time and I am grateful for your considerate and caring kindness. I will treasure and cherish it in days and weeks to come when the going might get tough and I might need a "lift-up".
It is a dazzlingly gorgeous flower, but then again – so are all proteas from my "corner of the world", but it needs an ardent and experienced photographer such as you to capture that beauty and share it with us.
The bright flower stands out like a "sore thumb" against the dark BG and the coronet of serrated crown leaves. The lovely yellow upright styles spread out and emanate like little beams of light exploding from the hairy core that can really represent the sun radiating its life giving rays of light. The centrally placed flower works great in this composition. The colours are intensely brilliant and the well chosen DOF ensured that every bit of fabulous details are exceptionally clear and "pin" sharp. The exposure levels are perfect and it brought out the great contrast in the flower, from the pure white hairy flower heads to the darker folds in the flower and the vegetation.
Excellent work and TFS.

Wow ! This macro is original and superb ! The centered composition works well here.
The "+++" : composition, subject & its form, POV, colors, sharpness, DOF, contrast against the dark BG, ligh & exposure, useful note...
The "-" : nothing...
Bravo mon Amie et merci pour le partage.

the density of structures, the depth of colours, the powerful simplicity of composition are most fascinating. More than perfect light and exposure, stunning depth of field, the bright furry blossoms explode from a background of gentle deep darkness. This is wonderful.
Thank you! With best regards,
