Cat's Whisker

This morning I opened the front gate and saw this perfect bloom from our cat's whisker plant. An idea came to me and minutes later I was scouring the void deck looking for cats. Three candidates were found : one was extremely friendly but wont want to face my camera, the other was too frail and sick. So I settled on one well-fed Tom cat. Took a while to gain his confidence and took the shot 3 ' away. Notice his slightly flattened ears - he was just too tensed up. When I attempted to move a bit closer....he took off.Cat's Whisker - Orthosiphon stamineus - compare with the real whisker below.
