This flower is one that has not yet bloomed. I thought it was interesting because of the shapes on the flower. There are the octagonal black and green shapes on the bottom, then the cylindrical-looking shapes at the top. The part that makes the picture the best is the black and green octagonal petals. They provide an interesting contrast because it is not often the color black is seen in flowers. Most flowers are bright colors like red, yellow, or orange but this was a darker color black.
