Looking for the King 6 - The bishop

Mitre Flower - Mitrasacme polymorpa, Golden Glory Pea - Gompholobium, Common Fringe Myrtle - Calytrix tetragona . I see bishop, gold and diamonds ... surely the king is near. 

The mitre flowers are so named because the buds are the shape of a bishop's hat.   I was lucky enough to get a bud in the photo, these flowers are really tiny.

  1. Wonderful macro shots Joan - and my favourite is that most glorious golden glory pea - gold now that certainly speaks to me of royalty -maybe the king is very near!
