A shot of some red flowers taken from the resort in Jamaica we stayed at. Again not sure what it is called, but the flowers look like helicopter blades. Hmm, maybe not...

Hi Derrick,

Lovely framing of this ixora plant which have beautiful flowers. Good lighting and sharp in focus.

Well done,
jusni

Hi Derrick,
I think it is not Ixora. The flower structure (the helicopter) is very typical to the Apocynaceae Family. Unfortunately I do not know the Genus even though it resembles the Acokanthera. There are over 400 Genera in the Family between the tropical and the warm temperate regions. An expert should be able to tell the species from the photo, because it represents the flowers very well.
TFS,
Pentti
