Here is the photo that pretty much all by itself pushed my Flickr photostream over 70,000 views tonight.
...and I still don't know what kind of flower it is.
A helpful reddit-or suggests that it's this: http://www.missouriplants.com/Pinkopp/Monarda_fistulosa_page.html but I'm not certain about that. The area under the flowering part is quite different in my photos.
Thanks for viewing!
