Plumeria rubra Yellow

Plumeria commemorates Charles Plumier, a seventeenth-century French botanist who described several tropical species. The genus contains 8 species of mainly deciduous shrubs and trees, originally from Central America, known for their strongly fragrant flowers. The tree can reach a height of 9m, though they are generally much smaller. Their fleshy branches contain a poisonous, milk sap. In the tropics, the terminally held flowers (generally white) appear before the leaves and continue to flower for most of the year. In subtropical climates the flowers appear in spring, after the leaves, and continue growing until the next winter. The fruit consist of 2 leathery follicles, althought the trees rarely fruit in cultivation. Most plumerias in gardens are hybrids. Plumerias are very salt tolerant.

Hello Paul,
I like the POV to show these Plumeria flowers in a rosette-like presentation. The DOF is great, to show the flowers well against the contrasting leaf BG and the natural colours and lighting are superb in this pleasing image.
The common name for Plumeria is I believe, Frangipani.
Very nice to view MF!
Thanks for sharing and enjoy your Sunday.

Hello Pauly,
What a splendid flowers. In the photo the sharpness, details, DOF, composition and POV are all excellent. Very beautiful saturated colours.

Beautiful photo Pauly! Very good composition and wonderful colours. The DOF and the sharpness are impressive!

Hello friend Pauly,
This Plumeria looks like our frangipani. It has hard petals and rather tolerant to salt and harsh temperature. The shot is excellent and details are well rendered. I like the yellow tint inside the white petals.
Thanks and have a great week ahead,

so clear, wonderful performance Paul, is just marvellous!
regards Nasos
