Spider Flowers (Explored!)

Anyone's ID of these would be most welcome....

 

I hadn't been on a photoshoot of any kind in a few weeks. Tonight I went to a local environmental center for someone else's photo exhibit and after viewing that and having some nice conversation I had a satisfying quick shoot in the garden. Low light, but my 50 f 1.4 did quite nicely!

 

UPDATE: A Facebook friend just sent me this ID of the flower: "common name is Spider Flower. botanical name: Cleome Hasslerana. native to brazil and argentina. variety is Rose Queen." Thanks, Liz! [So I renamed the photo]
