I shot this in the Botanical Garden in singapore. Normally I used to see this flower in the hotels but seeing it as a plant for the first time. ID I am not sure. Not a good flower identifier.

Thanks for looking.

Could this be a variation on Birds of Paradise flower, Ganesan? Well, only an expert would be able to confirm it.
This is a beautiful artistic composition with this delicate set of flowers. The BG is perfect and I like those slanting broad leaves at the bottom. They add great appeal to the composition.

Hi Narayanan,
I agree that this is a kind of bird of paradise flower. The image is sharp and well exposed. The composition is excellent. Very well done and tfs.

Hello Narayanan
Good photo of an "Heliconia" strelitziaceae family
Similar to Heliconia psittacorum which is completely yellow
I have to try to find the exact species
Will come back
Kind regards

Hello Ganesh,
Fine capture of some species of Strelitzia: there are many in the botanical gdns and they attract sunbirds.
This is nice and sharp and well portrayed against a pleasing OOF BG.
Best wishes, Ivan

Hello Ganesh

Another floral beauty.
Excellent illumination and lovely rich colours.
The focus is sharp with very good detail.
The frame is well filled and the shot is well composed.


Hello Ganesh!
I will not help you with ID, but still can write some words about photo ;) I like a lot composition and colouration of this image. Flower has very strange shape but you presented it with keeping all important details. Bravo for sharpness and details.
Friendly yours,

Great capture.
