[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
By one of the lodges in the jungle there was this tree standing with these flowers. I don't know how they are called, but I liked the form and color of it. Is there somebody who knows the name? Cropped it and framed it in the two colors of the flower.

Definatley an intresting set of flowers, these fine fillerments are beautifully captured.
as to an ident sorry no idea, but if your notes give some details about the size and shape of the tree, some people have been know to post an image of the whole tree as a Workshop image to help people get a feel for it.
if you have any questions please feel free to ask, yours Robert

this flower is beautiful...too bad, I also don't know the name. but in my country, we have a type of tree known as Raintree, it's flower looks almost like this, however I don't think they are the same :)

Very nice composition, good photo.

Ugh, that was a difficult one... Well, it's a Calliandra sp. (Fabaceae), a large genus with more than 130 spp. in America. Judging by the leaves it's probably C. schultzei. Flowers are pollinated by hummingbirds...
