[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A few weeks ago I had the good fortune to spend several days at the Pousada do Sandi in Paraty. Around the pool were dozens of these...what I call... "red dragon teeth" plants (heh, I'm a zoologist...not a botanist!) If somebody can tell me what this plant is, I'd be grateful.

Nice shot, I like the strong contrast the red with the green.
