[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Lemon-scented Darwinia is another small shrub endemic to the South-West of Western Australia. The name celebrates Darwin. the South coast of WA was his last Australian stay on his way home back to England on the Beagle. He was not impressed with the area, although he collected quite a number of species at the time unknown to the scientific world.

I was trying to catch the flower a contre-jour, with the sun almost straight behind the shrub.
