    Parrot flower of Thailand
    Never am quite sure if I do these links right or not...think I did.....umm if not I'll go find Trust and get his help. lol A friend of mine sent me a couple of photos of this. Tryin to figure out how to get photo from an email in here seemed harder than inserting a link lol so found this on youtube.
    Don't know if you guys have seen it before or not...... It's a rare and fascinating flower....won't bore ya to death with the details but realy fascinating. Least to me. lol I want one but ya can't have any and according to articles about it you'll go to jail in Thailand for trying to illegally buy the seeds. Here it is:

    That is gorgeous! No matter how hard we try, we could never duplicate good old Mother Nature.

    it's a gorgeous flower! thanks for introducing it to us.

    reminds me of pink lady slippers. well at least how pretty they are. growing up, i was obsessed with these flowers. we weren't allowed to pick them but didn't stop me. i couldn't help it, they grew in my backyard. plus i was only 6. not an excuse, just a reason.

    cheers.

    THAT is soooooooo amazing! It's so unique it's hard to believe it isn't doctored somehow to look like a parrot. But of course, it isn't. Is it???

    I have a few unique nature shots. I'll see if I'm allowed, or can figure out how, to post them in a thread under this photography topic.

    Thanks for sharing this one! I love it.

    Nice one! I remember I touched once a flower like this one and became scared because I began to make some noise! I was still small, about 10 years old so I got curious about it.
    It took me about 10 sec to understand that there was a bee inside the flower!
