This little beauty is commonly called the Soft Boronia. It is truly exquisite, only about 1 cm (just over a half inch) across, but in spite of its size there is a lot of detail packed in it. This is still a young flower, with the white filaments folded over the stigma in the middle. These will open later to show a deep pink stigma. I took this picture while walking in the beautiful Blue Mountains west of Sydney.
