Perhaps You Can Identify this "Unusual" Flower Bud
Lens: SMCP 35-70mm f/4 Camera: K20D Photo Location: Vancouver, B.C. ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/250s Aperture: F8

Perhaps you can help me identify this flower bud, which felt leathery and stiff.

I took this with the SMCP 35-70mm f/4 at its "macro" mode. I sharpened this more than I usually do since this zoom is rather soft even at f/8. However, the contrast and the bokeh are decent. This is a nice walk-around lens with a focal length that suits my style.

Thank you so much for such an accurate taxonomic info. Now I know how a knapweed looks like : )
