Pink Jester in the Greene by Owed to Nature

I have no idea what this flower is* but he captivates my imagination and entertains me like a regal court jester dancing through the green. Concord Greene gardens, Concord, Massachusetts USA

Focal length 275mm, Exposure 1/125 sec at f/5.6, ISO 100

’SDuring an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    It is such a nuissance to go back and forth from comments to description…Redbubble staff did not think on this one to be very aggravation to use photographers…..I hope to find out what this flower is…I’m good at reasearchs but I’m not sure I can find this on…If I do I will ley you know…my friend!!

  • Yes, not a fan of change either… much prefer creature of habit. But I guess change is inevitable and, when I have no choice, try to see it as a chance to grow??? ;-) Oh well, glad we can still share admiration for this mystery blossom. I too find it fascinating so will keep fingers crossed we can identify it some day. Thank you Lorraine!
