I had to wait 2 years for this to bloom again but it was 3 times the size of 2 years ago. I won’t say these are rare but they are very hard to spot when they are there. They blend in so well with there surroundings. I was standing 4 feet from this one, knowing where it should be, and only found it by seeing the pale bottom of the bloom. I thought how in the hell did you almost miss this flower. I am very glad I didn’t miss it this year. Great image, I love the black and white because it shows all the beauty without all the color distraction.
