Not many people will get excited, I suppose, by a plant like the one in the first picture.
But when you see the flowers you might well change your opinion. The first two pictures below seem to be exactly the same. In fact there is a small but not unimportant difference: the first of them was taken with the lens wide open (F2.8), whereas in the second one a smaller aperture was used (F11). To me the first of the pair has a rather more dream-like atmosphere. What do you think?
In the last one the camera was tilted to give a better view of the beautifully coloured outer petals.
In all species of Hereroa the flowers open in the afternoon or even later. (The pictures were taken at about 5 pm).
