J'aime particulièrement les espèces du genre Eryngium. Celle ci est extraordinaire, par son architecture et par ses couleurs. Très belle image.

It doesn't look like a flower you'ld want to bend down and smell with all those pointy looking parts. A very interesting plant. I love the colors and details you've captured. The blurred background highlights the details, well done.

Now this is an Apiaceae to see! Is the turning of color essentially the same phenomenon as with the deciduous trees in the Fall?

I don't know how we've missed each others work for so long. I guess we just get in the habit of looking for certain things or critiquing certain people.
Well,I'm not a botanist,but I do love plants and have a certificate in horticulture.
I used to have a beautiful garden in the North Island and Eryngium were one of my favourite plants.
I grew these amongst other unusual flowers like Monarda (Bergamot),Teasel,Echinops,and Artichokes.I also loved Tigridia and Toad Lilies and collected strange varieties of Dianthus and Columbine.
I also have a great love of New Zealand natives. Later on,after I've finished my coastal series I'll post some of our tiny native orchids.
BTW ... thanks for taking time to check out my work and critique it.
