[Update: Brought this forward because I finally found out what it is. It’s a Snail Vine (Vigna caracalla.) Seems appropriately named. 🙂 Originally posted to Flickr on 08/29/2009.]
I have no idea what kind of flower this is, but I love its color and graceful flowing lines. It was growing on a vine on the other side of a 4-foot chain-link fence, which I leaned over and rested my elbows on, while I took the shot.
