Larryleachia marlothii flower - extreme macro

An extreme macro photograph of the very tiny Larryleachia marlothii (a South African Stapeliad Desert flower). What makes this flower even more special is the fact that Stapeliad flowers usually have 5 petals (and not 6 petals like this flower).

 

Best viewed LARGE.
