Shy Guy



Makahiya, originally uploaded by Em Dy.

This is the flower of the makahiya, a plant whose leaves fold when touched. But I wonder why it's shy when it's very pretty?

Taken February 2009 in Cagayan de Oro

some of the prettiest things in life we assume are bold, when really they are shy. Great capture.

I guess we can learn something from this plant, can't we?

A strikingly lovely flower!

That plant is sold here, as a sensitive plant. I am not sure why I never even thought about it having a flower! I just thought of the leaves. And such a pretty flower, too!
