Hi Everyone. I was hoping you all could help me out. I'm trying to identify a flower based off of a single picture alone. I have no information about it what so ever unfortunately. I found it on a site that has nothing to do with plants or flowers, it just had this picture.

Thank you so much for all your help.

I do like this plant.If the bud opens while you are working real close to it you can hear a little pop,
