Hello dear Ori,
This is a very strange species ; I know neither gender nor family. Thanks for this post.

Bonjour Ori,
Très belle macro valorisant bien une espèce pour le moins originale.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Ah! I recognised this Kangaroo Paw. It is endemic to the west coast of Western Australia, from North of Perth down to Albany, and found with other Kangaroo Paw species such as the Red & Green KP, the WA floral emblem.
Nice photo that shows the characteristic tubular flowers with the anthers dangling down at the end.
There are many garden varieties of the KPs, surviving better in Mediterrean type of climate.
The family is Haemodoraceae, a small family ranging from America, South Africa and Australasia.
