The Bat Flower is quite unusual. I used a filter to improve the background.

    I have never seen this remarkable flower. Your photograph is impeccable – very beautiful indeed. I like the way the background colour echoes colour in the flower.

  • It is a very tropical plant and likes to grow in well protected areas, dont think it would like the extreme temperatures in victoria. Those white tendrils will fall and hang down 2 ft or more. it is quite amazing to see. Thanks for your wonderful comments.
