Although this looks like an alien it is actually a single flower, on a stalk of about 20, of the Large Round Leaved Orchid.

Remarkable image Warren. A very distinctive look of an alien here. Well seen and spotted. Thank you for sharing this.

Finely detailed portrait, separates from the background even at this aperture.

Great capture of an orchid "face". Stands out well from the complex background with very nice detail and light. It does tickle my imagination-well done!

Great shot, very well detailed and incredibly beautiful colors.
I see a little fairy with wings, overwhelmed and covering her eyes with her little hands.

A beauty!  This little lady is shy and puts her hands up to her face as you take her picture. :)
