Dear friends and visitors,
This flower is very commom in the northeastern Brazil as shrub for squares and gardens.Its green leaves are modified at the end of the branches and become pink to receive a very small and unique yellow flower.This one I found behind my house and I think it is beautiful,but I have no idea about its IDD.Sorry!Hope someone here could help me to found the IDD of this flower.Thanks for visiting!
Big hug from,

PS: this flower was well identified by manee makkala (makkala) as:
Mussaenda Queen Sirikit, Peach Mussaenda
This mussaenda is a named cultivar, "Queen Sirikit" the current Queen of Thailand. It was named to commemorate her first visit to the Philipines in the 1970's. The only mussaenda ever to be given a name of a person not of Filipino extraction. Mussaenda is a tropical shrub or sub-shrub that will grow to 10ft tall in tropical areas, but more likely will reach 1-3ft tall in containers. Clusters (corymbs) of small, tubular flowers with five spreading lobes bloom in summer, however it is the large and colorful, ovate, leaf-like sepals (to 3” long) that provide the real ornamental display. Some individual flowers in each cluster will develop a single enlarged sepal. Elliptic to ovate, bright green leaves (to 6” long). Hybrids typically feature flowers in red and/or yellow with showy sepals of white, bright red or pink.
Note by manee makkala .Thanks Manee!!!!

Hello Ana,
Wonderful macro with perfect details, focus and exposure. It is a great capture of a very interesting flower. Impressive colors and shape.
Thanks for sharing and visiting my gallery!

Ciao Marco.

Hello aNa,
Very beautiful indeed. I am bouncing between two thoughts here. On the one hand I think the image could be a little sharper and on the other I am reminded of a legendary nature photographer who does not do PP at all. More and more I begin to think that the latter is the way to go...no PP, no PS...just good photography and no playing technician. Whatever....an unusual and delightful image for me. Best wishes.

Hi Ana,
What a great picture of this very beautiful and delicate flower,splendid colors,BG and excellent sharpness.

Ciao Ana, great macro of lovely flower, fine details, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio
