This photo really caught my eye with the different angle it was taken. Never once did I wonder what the flower might look like right side up. The flower form shown made its own beautiful impact. It was very interesting indeed.

Thanks for your kind comments. I had a fabulous time watching this flower develop over a few weeks in September. Amazing texture, hairs, colour - and smell!

I agree and I'd say add all of them.
I hope all the contest photos - where appropriate - will eventually end up in the database. It would be a shame not to have such splendid examples there.
