Fascinating flower! It looks like something out of a fairy tail.

I just wanted to let you know that I have removed your spottings from the BioBlitz 2013: Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve mission as it is specific to that preserve in Louisiana as per the description (so your spottings would be out of range).
