OCTOBER IS BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH!

Thank you for the id Hawkeye (Art), it's appreciated!

This is a Citronella Geranium flower (Pelargonium citrosum). They vary in shape, size and colour, but every variety shares the same five-petaled bloom design. Heehee, one petal is missing on the main flower!

I'll respond back to my contacts soon. Please have a fabulous Tuesday and a wonderful remainder of the week, everyone!

Best regards, Kate

A real stunner Kate ... exceptional colours, clarity and details, especially on the hairs of the plant!! A perfect bokeh and DoF on this shot, highlighting these flowers even more ... an outstanding and welll executed piece of work!! One of your best ...

Most people may know "Citronella," an ingredient in Mosquito repellent!! The Pelargonium citrosum plant is marketed as "Mosquito Plant" in stores in Canada and the US ... even though research indicates the plant is ineffective against mosquito bites!! ... I guess the most effective for Mosquitoes is still the chemical DEET!! They say that Mosquitoes were seen landing and resting on this plant on a regular basis ... LOL!!

Here is a slightly different colour with the similar structure and stamen:

This is exquisite !

Mum used to have a huge plant of it in a flowerpot indoors. I have also grown it that way. Taking cuttings is also easy from the plant !

Think Pink (Kate) has replied to Pam J
Thank you Pam, I didn't see too many, but I was first attracted to the pretty colours, the small flowers with the crimson streaks, and the really, the stamen design too! And of course the tiny hairs!
