Touching the Edge by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

I believe this flower is very special, because it was the only one of its kind, plus it was at a garden where I used to live as a child. Took this photo on a small trip I made to a Paradise called Puerto Rico. I like how the long part of the flower which is called the pistil is touching right on the edge line of the photograph.
