Kangaroo Paw, Macropidia fuliginosa by 

This is a black and grey kangaroo paw that is less common. They are perennial herbs consisting of leaves rising from underground rhizomes. Flowers are in clusters on stalks which grow from the bases of the leaves. A number of species die back to the rhizome in summer, regenerating in autumn. All species are restricted in distribution to the southern areas of Western Australia. This one was taken in Perth. WA.
This particular one is a spectacular species. The individual plants consist of blue-green strap-like leaves 20 to 50 cm in height. Flowers occur in spring and summer on branched stems to a metre or more high and are greenish-yellow with black, soot-like hairs. Black hairs also occur along the stems.
I live in Western Australia & this is part of our national emblem.
This is part of a series.

I am a fine art photographer who has found that nature can be very healing. Many people are unable to get out and spend time in nature, so my goal is to bring nature to them. “Bringing the healing of nature, from the outside in”. So now wherever you are or whatever you do, you too can benefit from natures healing. Whether it be for yourself or as a gift, buy an image from my healing art collection and see the joy it will bring to your life.
