[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I found this kangaroo paw while out walking this morning.

I have cropped, adjusted levels, blurred the background, sharpened, framed and reduced in size for posting.

"Kangaroo paw is a common name for a number of species in the family Haemodoraceae that are endemic to the south-west of Western Australia. These perennial plants are noted for their unique bird attracting flowers. The tubular flowers are coated with dense hairs and open at the apex with six claw-like structures: from this paw formation the common name 'Kangaroo Paw' is derived."
