No, this is not an April Fool's Day joke; it is real.

I love these parrot tulips and your image shows them at their best.
Lovely heavily saturated color...especially nice against the black background. Beautiful.

Like the contrast between the vivid & luminous yellow of tulips and the black background. A very effective effect.

I think if you move away one of the flower, it will be more effective. That's just my opinion tho!

The colours here are great. I like them against the black background too. A pity you couldn't either crop out the "half tulip" on thr right, or get it all in. I guess nature isn't always kind to photographers though

Great macro of the curly (not April Fool's Day) tulip. The colour is great too and it stands out perfectly against the black background.

A beautiful composition that you have captured here, incorporating great elements of color and detail. The black background really gives this parrot tulip some "punch."
