Maypop
(08.26.05)

When you think of marching to your own drum, this flower has got to be near the top of the list. Even its name is a bit off, Maypop, when it really pops in August. Reminds me of a fireworks display and it grows wild around my parts.

Nikon Coolpix 5700
1/140s f/6.9 at 37.7mm iso100 full exif

A most bizarre floral wonder :-0 The purple strands are reminescent of starched hand woven christmas decorations.And those helicopter sexual organs are just crazy.Wow!

I've never seen Maypop before.
Very odd but eye catching flower!

Wow fantastic flower. It really looks like the passionflower Passiflora incarnata. Lucky you to have it growing wild.

Boy, it sure knows how to make a statement, doesn't it? What a wonderful shape, and such exotic colours ... :)

I agree, this is a beautifully unique specimen. I've always wanted to photograph one, but I've yet to come across one to have the opportunity. You've captured it here perfectly.
