Strange flower and new lens

I added a new lens (AF-S VR Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED) to my kit recently and was trying it out today at Yoyogi Park.

One of the interesting things that I shot, was this strange little flower.  I was able to take a photo of one with petals and one without.  I wonder what kind of flower this is...

BTW - I have started a blog more focused on photo technique and equipment called F2.0 Photography. The latest post there has more photos taken in Yoyogi Park with this exceptional lens.
