  2. Beautiful, beautiful. The green of the pretty shaped leaves helps support the wonderful color of the unusal purple and white flower.

    What camera are you using or is that between you and your subjects?

    Regards,

    • It was taken with a sigma sd 14. But the star is the Afgekia sericea vine, I think.

      • Thanks for the reply, Prospero. WordPress is not working as it should. I see that you replied but I did not get a notification from them. So, I thought to look to see if you had answered. Thank you for the info. The vine is beautiful and your camera takes very nice photos.

  3. This is simply stunning, the angle of the vine and flower creates quite an appeal. Congratulations on this amazing photograph.

  4. Afgekia sericea vine!!! could you have invented a more fascinating name for this beauty? such deep green, as if the night itself were hidden in its core, dreaming the dream of that impossible blossom…

    are there two photos for this post? why is it that when i click on the image, i get another small photo underneath, a kind of lilac tulip opening among vertical leaves?

    • Actually, i didn’t invent the name… but if i had it would have been Ariadne pulchra (beautiful Ariadne)…

      After several imprecations, i gave up trying to fix what wordpress was wanting to do… it’s the wrong size, and editing it has proven to be futile ( i have little patience with dark, foreboding matters).

      • Well, i guess the imprecations did work (they usually do)… it’s fixed now–for you!

    • Trouble? What trouble? i don’t consider my obsessive leanings to be ‘trouble.’ Naturally my therapist (therapist and editor–if you must know) has an entirely different view on the subject.
