Artist's Description

A tiny emerging grevillea seen next to a walking track at Wentworth Falls in the Blue Mountains of Australia. This is the end section of a small flower.

For the benefit of the macro groups this section of the flower is about 2.5 cm long.

As mentioned in some of the comments below, I came across this flower because I followed the wrong track to the falls. Thank god for mistakes.

Also, the flower looks different in it’s final stage as the pink stems shoot upwards. It was great timing to catch it at this stage.

I don’t know what type of grevillea this is. I haven’t seen it in nurseries or gardens & it hasn’t come up on any grevillea search on the internet.
