[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Guzmanias grow in the tropical and subtropical forests of America. They attach themselves to trees and their roots never reach the soil, although some are in fact terrestrial. Dead leaves and the droppings of birds and monkeys collect in the grottoes where they wedge themselves, providing nourishment as they decompose, and the channel shaped leaves catch and convey rainwater to the centre of the plant. Every so often, the rosette throws out typical candlestick like bracts in lively red, signaling flowering, and it is that essence that we try to capture, as we introduce Guzmania into our interiors.

Hello Garmen,
This is absolutely beautiful and deserves more than my single comment, I must say. It is a mutual game these comments and one must encourage and guide the people around us. I do not like the attitude here. keep posting more photos and keep shooting...happy Christmas and happy New Year too, take care...warmest regards/Abid

Que foto linda, Carmem !! Parabéns..

Bonjour Carmen,
La présentation est intéressante mais le cadrage est un peu trop serré sur le haut de l'image et le sujet ne s'oppose pas suffisament dans son environnement.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Ola Carmem,
Que BELEZA!!!!
Mario no Canada.
