Unknown Flower

Posted by
Sugata (Lake Forest, United States) on 22 July 2010 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Can someone tell me the name of this flower? I photographed it at the National Botanical Garden, Washington, D.C.

PENTAX K-7 1/640 second ISO 100 75 mm (35mm equiv.)

Thanks a lot to everyone who commented on my photos, or even stopped by for a visit. The comments have been pouring in pretty fast and I'm finding it increasingly difficult to reply to each individually. I'd rather spend that time in viewing others' photos and commenting there. But I do read each comment individually, and if you ask me something specific, I'll answer that.

Hmmm sorry but I won't be able to help you, I've never seen this kind of flower. The colors and the DOF are really nice, very well done Sugata. Have a great day :)
