Unknown Flower


I'm not really an expert on flowers, if anyone knows this one feel free to comment. The diffused light on the flower gives the photo a calm look without being too bright. As I often do I used a shallow depth of field to focus only on the flower.

Have a good weekend, i'll try to post tomorrow.

That flower is commonly known as beebalm...
Monarda..is it's latin first name
It has fragrant leaves and hummingbirds love the bright mostly red, purple and pink flower, as well as bee's.

Bee Balm, I thought that's what it was. Although I know it as an herb called Bergamot. I have one but flowers never grace me.
