For starters, I'd say the blossom is pretty interesting.

From couple of days ago with HX50V. I was trying to capture the delicate translucent effect created with flowers back lit
by the evening light coming through the door.

Not very successful in this one...

Sury I didn't see your question above before. The plant is interesting to me because of the large flowers and because the leaves are poisonous to goats etc.

This is a species of Heliconia. It's the only species I've come across in my neck of the woods.

This is Gloriosa superba. Quite a name. It is native to Africa and Asia but grown more or less world wide as a garden flower. It is an interesting plant. Why? Because all parts of the plant are poisonous and it is reputed to have been used in both murders and suicides.

A superb shot of the superba, Pitter! :) One to keep away from the kids I guess.

I especially like the first one JB :)

Also took the a900 and ZA 125mm out for a spin. In case you didn't know, I like purple.
