    I'd say "fascinator" is the perfect name for this flower. What an interesting bloom; and your pictures of it are very good. Something kind of insect like about it....

    The top part is really pretty, with that purple fringe; the bottom part is interesting . Does it have any scent?

    I'm loving the purple fringing. Of course, as a photographer, we generally don't want to see purple fringing, but in this case, it's quite okay!!

    Thanks everybody!

    It is fairly accurate but maybe a touch less blue in real life. Pic #2 is the closest. It depends on the light too.

    It has a very faint sent of carion but I have to shove my nose in it.

    It is very animated in a breeze, reminds me of a fishing lure. All the fringe flutters and the tongue is articulated.

    I see a robot or tribal guy with a little head and a big hood in pic #4 and a lion with two fangs and a huge tongue in the last (lol!).

    100mm macro at F22 (aperature priority on a tripod) and natural light from a NE window.

    PM me if you want the vendor, they are a good one.
