Giant Protea

Giant Protea, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

These lovely inflorescences are the size of a large dinner plate - about 12 inches (20 cm) across. This one was photographed at Kirstenbosch Botanical Garden using my Canon EF 100-400 f4.5/56L lens. I was after birds that morning, but some of the flowers were so spectacular that I had to do them as well.
