Violet rays

12 August, 2005

prev: Need for Speed
Noticed this beautiful flower in the shrubbery at the Tirupati Rock Garden. Can any botanist help me with it's name?

Update (Aug16) - The flower is Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata). Thanks Anuradha!!

Just a thought - Wonder when Google's search technology will be advanced enough to allow us to enter an image in the search window and list relevant sites with information pertaining to the image as search results!

Shot in July2005, F/5.6, 1/400s, ISO-100. Another photo of the amazing rocks at this garden here. Entry for the PhotoFriday Challenge - 'Violet'
