    I’ve not seen this flower before and so can’t help with the ID, but it is definitely a delicate and fragile-looking bloom. Wonderful light and bokeh background!

  • Thanks so much Celeste. I think it is in the Prostanthera family. Its an Australian Native Shrub.

    Lovely shot

    These could be either one of the Prostanthera or Eremophila; but that might help you to start the search :)

  • Many thanks. I will look on google and see what I can find out.
