Moose and Rick,

Thanks for the kind words. This tulip-shaped bloom grows on the aptly-named Tulip Poplar tree, whose leaf is also tulip-shaped, and it happens to be the Tennessee State Tree. The trees grow to about 80 ft, and the blooms are usually well out of reach. I have two trees, bought at the same time from the same nursery, and, while this one has blooms, the other does not. A few of the blooms are at a low level, where I can get a photo. I like the colors, as well as the shape.

Around here few few tulips survive the deer.

Three days after I posted my original image of this bloom, it is still
there, looking fine, after rain showers and 30 mph winds.  I thought it
deserved another shot, with a different lens and slightly different
perspective.

Nicely captured, both times. A really nice flower, and one I don't believe
I've seen.
