      very nice. i'm jealous of those colors. we don't have the textured, spotted variety. I love the way those, uh, tendrils(?) the blue spotted legs curl up at the end. Putting up macro flowers and plants and bugs is an important honor to such beautiful small things.

      I know the unwilling obsession...I want to be original, but these flower macros draw me in...I am about to post more ...if you get a chance to look.

      The mushrooms are a very original departure, btw.

      Gorgeous. The shape reminds me of a jellyfish, only this one is floating in . . .

      You may not be aware of it, but there seems to be a growing cult of the passion flower for its odd, quirky looks ... The humorists seem all to associate it with UFOs and aliens.
      In my curiosity to find the earliest flickr mention of the flower in terms of alien-ness, I have landed on your delightful photo here as first of these observations!!! -- I think the word must have travelled by telepathic osmosis among passiflora fanciers ...
      Here's a handful of fellow off-world passiflora observants to survey, at your leisure!! -- Great mirth ahead ...
