This was also taken at the same nursery as the peony in the previous shot. It’s a flowering banzai—most people think of pines when they think of banzai, but there actually five types of banzai. This is a crop of the original photo, which included a lot more of the banzai and its flowers. Upon viewing this on my computer, though, I noticed the fly there, and decided to crop it to feature the fly.
