Pretty Strangler

At some stage in its history our property must have been host to a passion vine. We continually pull out new vines each year. They seem to grow at a phenomenal rate if allowed to do so, and will strangle anything they cling to. I would allow one to survive if I could, because I love the flowers. Each one only lasts a day, but there’s something about them that has a huge appeal to me. They seem amazingly constructed. This image is a macro shot of one with a drop of water on it at the centre. I have some plain shots of this flower as well, but this one must have caught a bit of bright sun light through the lens, and I loved it the moment I saw it.
