Grey Spider Flower (Grevillea buxifolia) by 

This unusual grey flower is the Grey spider flower (Grevillea buxifolia). It is a species in the family Proteaceae.

First described in 1793 by James Edward Smith, he gave the new species the name ‘Embothrium buxifolium’.

This image was captured during spring in the Royal National Park near Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Canon 400D, as is.

I live in Australia and enjoy bushwalking in the great outdoors, especially the world heritage listed Blue Mountains National Park.

My photographic interests are pretty much related to Australian landscapes, rustic Australia, historic Australia, Australian wildlife, flora, fauna, birds, etc. Guess I love the country I was born and live in.
