See Differently 4-15

Trying to see things differently on a macro level, the Protea in my backyard are in bloom and I really wanted to examine this plant on many levels, so this post actually has more than one image, but it is of the same plant, so I figure it’s OK.

Such an intricate flower with lots of these hairy little stamens all over it, on tall stalks, these ones are quite small, a species named 16 candles, only approx 6-10 inches in diameter, I have another species called King White which have enormous flowers. The Protea is considered a native here in Australia, but they originated from South Africa.

Below is a gallery of some images taken on various parts of the plant, as well complete flower below.
