I found this unusual looking plant recently near a Southwest Michigan lake. I’d be interested to see if anyone knows what this might be :)

Nice photo – excellent detail. Looks like Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis), a sprawling, wetland shrub.
Thanks Nick! :)
Reblogged this on VIVIMETALIUN.
Thanks for the reblog! :)
Noir33 is correct!
Thanks Arthur! There are quite a few knowledgable people out there including you :)
Nice shot! :) Yes, it’s a Button Bush Tree. I see them in the woods occasionally when I go out macro-photographing. Bees and butterflies especially enjoy the round blossoms for the large quantity of nectar that they produce.
Thank you for the info :)
Cool flower–I’ve never seen one before.
Thank you Carol :)
Thanks Pat :)
Thank you! :)
What a strange flower, I never saw one before. You captured it so beautifully Jeff. I struggle sometimes to find the right composition with flowers that are more in upright positions like this one, trying to find the right angle, but you excel in that, your flowers photographs are always perfectly composed. :)
Wow, thanks so much Jocelyne :) I love your flower photos and the way you compose them too :)
I see someone else already answered your question. I did not know what ti was but found it interesting and a great shot.
Thank you :)
