Pulling Apart Protea Grandiceps

We pulled apart a few Protea Grandiceps flowers and found that there was plenty of beauty on the inside. The top flower shows how it looks before getting pulled apart. In the middle, you'll see what it looks like after we pulled off a few petals, exposing the satiny, saffron-colored filaments. The flower on the bottom shows what it looks like with the filaments and most of the petals removed. Lastly, in the bowl are the filaments, looking like saffron on steroids.
