Bottle Brush

The bottle brush flower is truly amazing .... it starts off as these little "balls" tightly
wrapped, on a 'stalk" and slowly they start opening, stretching, as it were, in order
to open up into the specimen above.
Below are a few images of different stages of growth and of the  detail.

This is probably the most amazing and beautiful flower I have ever seen. The way it starts out compared to the way it is after it blooms is mind boggling. Your maco shots are great. What a RED!!!!

I love the shot where the little brushes are still curled up and ready to spring to life.
