[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The unopen flower of the Parrot Bush (Dryandra sessilis). There are about 90 species of Dryandras, all endemic to the South-West of Western Australia. They are closely related to Banksias. The Parrot Bush is a common prickly tall bush of the Jarrah forest understorey. It is a pioneer species on land disturbed by fire or clearing and a favourite of honeyeater birds but I have never seen parrots on it!

Hello Odile.
Very nicely done... I like the angle you used leaving all the flower's reproductive parts nice and sharp.Regards Siggi

Hi Odile,
Should have been a very spectacular image indeed, but lacking sharpness in my opinion. Probably you lost it through the re-sizing procedure and you didn't re-sharpen the TN-sized image. Hopefully next time.
Best regards, László
