anthurium

Photobucket


bought an unreasonable amount of flowers on the market today (it happens to me too often). including those anthuriums

of course I photographed them - no flower is left well alone in our house, just standing quietly in a vase is not an option.

While keywording pictures for stock, I found (on wikipedia, where else), that common names from Anthurium are "Flamingo Flower" and "Boy Flower".

I have my doubts about "Flamingo Flower" - although, if the angle is right and you squint a bit, yes, you can see something flamingo-like

"Boy Flower" however causes no questions at all

there's only one word to describe the depth of colour and the wonderful range of texture you've captured - WOW!

what a happy find!
