Some people are like slinkies, not good for anything but will give you a good laugh when you push them down the stairs. :)

Tanju, it has the resemblance of one of the Freesia species, but can't determine it in a postive way by only its flower.
Your image is a different story, lol, because it's a precious post. Well taken, and with care!
Regards, Cornelius.

Filaments of this flower seem like laser at first sight. Light on this flower is very nice. This flower seems better on front of black background. Also harmony of yellow with red is very beautiful.
Realy great shot. I like it.

It is different, but I don't know the name. And it's very unusual, too. Nice work, Tanju.

Tanju - Here is a case of if the flies won't come to the flower, the flower comes to the flies! Wonderful lighting and color saturation. Thad

You don't stop surprising me. :) The flower is very interesting I agree and the way you have captured it it's amazing. The colors are captured beautifully contrasting against the black background very well, also the sharpness and clearness of it is perfect too!

Some people have Gurus, I have my camera. Through the cam lenses I have learnt to deeply perceive life, not only to see, but to look at all expressions of nature, becoming able to read the poetry of the flowers, receiving the embrace of the trees and flying above the clouds without wings! - Susie Sun
