Artist's Description

No, of course it isn’t. It is not a pink flamingo, even though it looks remarkably like one! :-)

Can anyone help? This summer I took this shot of a flower bud in a hanging basket, and can’t figure out now what it is. Any clues, greatly appreciated!

Update 26 Nov 2010: Huge thanks to yeuxdechat for his perseverance in identifying what it is! It’s a New Guinea Impatiens hawkeri. See his comments below for some more reference links

[Sony a350, Sigma 105mm, f/10, 1/320sec, ISO-100; LR3]
