    Beautiful color - don't often see blue in that shade or that saturated. Thanks for posting it.

    Yep, same pic! So I fear the pic posted here is in breach of copyright.

    Yes, it almost likely was, given the file name was named along the lines of "cd-layout-blue-flower", and the name of the plant is in the Flickr tags...

    The person who the image belongs to -- in no uncertain terms -- asserts their copyright.

    Here's a simpler link to the image:

    Wow....so much controversy generated!

    I thank whoever made it known that the image was copyrighted.


    I came across it online...and just was curious as to the genus/species.


    I'm glad I only posted it here!




    thank you all again,
    A
