This is an image of the twin blooms that the two macros (below) were shot from. I'm posting it in hopes that someone can help identify it...


This is SOOC without a crop job.... Just a little border in Picnic... that's it... thanks......

Oh yes - Texture by Canon.... -:))




FYI! I received the message below this morning from this kind gentleman who has identified the flower as Godetia. Needless to say I sent him a message of thanks....



What an astonishing number of posts about your flower pic! Most with no hint of identification. Great photo. It is Godetia (or Clarkia) amoena. Comes in various colors (no true blue or yellow), and always recognizable by its parts in 4s, including the stigma's cross-shape which you captured so well. Also, the inferior ovary (looks like a little pickle, always 4-angled, behind the flower proper).
