[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
"You must not know too much or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees and flowers and watercraft; a certain free-margin, and even vagueness - ignorance, credulity - helps your enjoyment of these things." WALT WHITMAN 1819-92

I'm so glad of this quote because I don't know what these tulps are called. The RHS show was a riot of colour as you can see - but this beautiful tulip caught my eye.

Lesley,
Excellent macro of these beautiful tulips. I can understand Walt Whitman's quote that it's not necessary to always know the details, but sometimes it's nice to know so you can find more of them. These are called "parrot tulips" because the petals resemble feathers and knowing that doesn't make me appreciate it any less. This one has such superb color and clarity. Great job. :)
