All Fur and Gloss
Red Pincushion Protea. Wow. This thing is all fur and red gloss. It's pretty amazing. It makes you wonder what all the hairs are for. Did it protect the flowers from UV at high altitudes? Did it keep bugs off of certain parts of the flower? Do the hairs force the bugs to travel in a particular direction (doesn't look like that is the case but you never know)? It's fun to wonder.
