A Flower in Arecibo’s Spring by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

This flower I found while hiking on my way to a spring in Arecibo, Puerto Rico. There wasn’t many flowers, just a few of this same kind but I thought it would be a good picture with a close up. It took me like a ten minute walk to get to these flowers and the spring, but when I finally got there I dive right in.
