Dear friends and visitors,
I found this little flower at an nature reserve of the Atlantic Forest near to the beach on the north coast of my region.
It is always with excitement that I see these little flowers so delicate under a truly strong sun.I have no idea about the ID...So if somebody knows,please do not hesitate to say!
I hope you love my pic...It is just for you all!

Big hug from,

PS: this flower was well identified by Ori Fragman Sapir as Capparis spinosa caper.Thanks Ori!!!!I appreciated it!!!!

Hello Ana,
I have no idea of it's identity, all I can say is we don't grow them in Ohio:) It is certainly a gorgeous bloom with it's long delicate stamen and greenish white petals. A real beauty and captured wonderfully by your camera. Well done!!

Hello Ana,
Very beautiful photo in splendid contrasting colours against the dark background. Excellent sharpness, details and DOF. Taken from a good POV. A beauty!

Love your presentations to us precious aNa!! And yes love your pic. Lilac color with extensions so interesting, against the stark background, framing, detail..just BREATHTAKING

Hi Ana,

decidedly it belongs to Capparaceae family.With regard to the species i'd say "Capparis elegans", the only Capparaceae species endemic to Brazil (florabrasiliensis.cria.org.br./taxonCard?id=FB6802).But i have not the absolute certainty.I have several specimens of "Capparis spinosa" blossoming spontaneously in my garden, for this reason on the other hand i'm sure about its family.The photo is good, surely not perfect, but beauty of these flowers is unquestionable.



PS: now i saw your addition to the note, "Capparis spinosa" differs both as leaves and as flowers.Compare with this my photo from TrekLens "www.treklens.com/gallery/photo620668.htm".

Bonjour Ana,
Nous sommes en parfait accord et postons une critique de la même image en même temps :-)
Et me voilà regardant la tienne, très belle d'une espèce de câpres. Je peux les voir ici dans notre jardin botanique.
Bonne et belle journée

Interesting Capparis species Ana! Beautiful photo with good composition, wonderful colors and very good sharpness!
I think that Alessio gave you the correct identification!
