A late in the day blip and needed the flash to capture.

An indigenous species named for Joseph Banks who was the Botanist on Captain Cooks first voyage to Australia (1768 to 1771). In April 1770, they became the first Europeans to reach the east coast of Australia, making landfall on the shore of what is now known as Botany Bay.

There are approximately 80 species of Banksia but I can't tell you what this particular one's special name is.

Fascinating but and often quite messy and unattractive plants (in my opinion.... sorry I'm a Virgo). They need looking at closely to be appreciated. Love the dead "seed heads" on this one.
