Day 198:the one that got away

These yellow hanging flowers (from the lovely Dominique’s garden) had a hook-like stem that protruded from the centre of the flower…..my mind pondered this natural design feature and its use. Was it to increase attractiveness or for efficiency of pollination?

Of its true use I am not quite sure, but it lead me to play with the idea of the hook and lure and contemplate the age old story of the ‘one that got away’.
