Cobea scandens

The botanical name is honored for Father Cobo, Spanish Jesuit of the seventeenth century, naturalist, and resident of America for many years. The plants can reach 20ft with their woody stems. Leaves are alternate lobed with opposite pairs and tendrils. In late summer to early spring, the large, bell-shaped flowers borne profusely and singly along the stems with bright green, violet, or purple in colors. The plants can become invasive in some areas, and is a common weed in New Zealand.

It's something very special about the first 3 images, maybe the light, maybe a different better camera...
I like the lighting conditions and the yellowish filter.
This flower amazes me with its design
