Passion fruit... by thewatersphotos

Passion fruit...

Our "field" is a hay field, intended to produce hay, and it does. But there are random "other things" growing there, as well. There is a rather hearty Maypop, aka purple passionflower (passiflora incarnata), growing in the field. It has actually produced some maypops, which some folks use to make jelly.
The flowers are very intricate!
what a beautiful shot and beautiful flower, I really like the color, I've seen them blue

@brokenbird asked the question I wanted to ask! So this just grows wild where you are? Amazing! They are interesting flowers!

Such an interesting looking flower. Hard to tell where the flower ends and the photobombers start.

It's funny how these just show up in different places in groups of two or three.

Beautiful flower. When the hay is harvested do all these other things get mowed down?

These flowers fascinate me - incredible combination of shapes and colour.

@brokenbird @rhoing Thanks to both of you for noticing the visitor. I sent the photo to my entomology brother in law. He sent back, "It's an insect I am pretty sure. Need to see it under a scope". Needless to say that bug is long gone!

@randystreat Ha! I know. I got another picture with what looks like a wasp walking through the petals.

@milaniet Thanks! It is. This is literally in the middle of the field!

@k9photo Thanks, Kate! Yes, usually. They will just come part of the hay.

@casablanca Thanks! I know!!

Your passion flowers are not so different from ours... both types are beautiful I think.
