Rewarewa... A 30 m tall Protea !
A 30m tall Protea. Amazing! I never would ahve guessed that a species from this family grew outside Africa. But then again flowers are not my speciality. Very beautifull. Thanx Steve.

Hi Steve, very interesting plant, something that I have never seen before. Good colours, maybe you could have had a slightly shorter exposure? Anyway, good work and interesting note.

Very interesting and I am as surprised as Gerhard to hear about Proteas existing naturally outside South Africa and then a big one like this.
I woul like to suggest that you get a small compact (as I see you dwell around the forest a lot) tripod. I had one that is about 20 cm long which helped a lot. This will allow you to use smaller appertures to get better DOF.
Thanks for posting

Realmente una espectacular espécimen Steve al igual que tu nota explicativa sobre la misma.
Muy buen colorido y agudeza con adecuado encuadre.
El F2.8 tal vez sea escaso, pero el resultado es muy bueno.
Really a spectacular specimen Steve like your explanatory note on the same one.
Very good colorful and sharpness with adapted frame.
Perhaps the F2.8 is little, but the result is very good.

Nice skeleton, wish you collected it and took it to a home studio against another solid background like a museum shot where you could work the DOF also a little bit. The colors are spectacular. But again thats me, some people like to leave things where they found them ( however as a fellow speleologist I guarabtee you Inever did and never will take any mineral out of a cave and will punish to the full extent of the Petzl metal parts anyone who I catch doing it ! :)

Nature can take all kind of shape. This one is weird and beautifful.
Weird because we don't see often this kind of plant.
Beautifull because of the colour.
