[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Brachychiton paradoxum (Red-flowered Kurrajong / An-marrenarnak) - is a small, often straggly tree that is widespread on the lowlands. It is deciduous in
the dry season, when bright-red bell-shaped flowers appear on short stems from
the branches.
In this photo seed pods can also be seen and if you look closely Green Ants are moving along the small stems. Another name for the ant is "Lemon ant" and indeed they contain vitamin C, and the Aborigines have used them to treat colds.
