Flowers: coxcomb, celosia-cristata

Note: Revised December 25, 2012,fixing bad Facebook photo links.

The circuitous folds of this flower resembles a cock's comb or wattles.
Here is a photo from a Handbook of Philippine Flowers member.

The only explanation why you cannot see the photos hosted in Facebook is that Facebook may have changed the image url links. (Will take note of this).
