Kangaroo paw

Discovered this morning that the Kangaroo Paws at the local library are just beginning to flower. They are indigenous to Western Australia, where they grow wild throughout the bush and are that state's floral emblem. They come in many colours and there are yellow ones just beginning to flower in this garden bed; I'll get a shot of them next week when they have opened further.
Beautiful! love the furriness & the DOF!

The closer you look at the more you realise it's been aptly named. We do have some strange looking flowers here in Australia. Nicely captured.
