Narcissus

There is a ancient Greek Myth of how the flower Narcissus got it’s name. Zeus basically punished Narcissus for the way he treated the Nymph Echo. However, at death Narcissus uttered words of love for another and Zeus took pity on him and transformed his body into a white flower that would bloom once again, every spring. This one photographed at The Keukenhoff in Holland. You can see other works of nature and buy prints at my commercial gallery.
