An Allium flower in full bloom, backlit by a setting sun so that it looks like it has a halo.  This bloom is from a flowering scallion (green onion).  Allium  blooms are inflorescences, clusters of individual flowers that all emerge from a common stalk.  More specifically they're umbels, since all the flowers attach at a common point.
