[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Trumpet vine or Trumpet creeper (Campsis radicans),
is a large and vigorous woody vine of the family Bignoniaceae, notable for its showy trumpet-shaped flowers. It is native to woodlands of the southeastern United States, but popular for arbors across the warmer parts of the country. The flowers are very attractive to hummingbirds, and many types of birds like to nest in the dense foliage.
The vigor of the trumpet vine should not be underestimated. In warm weather, it puts out huge numbers of tendrils that grab onto every available surface, and eventually expand into heavy woody stems several centimeters in diameter. It grows well on arbors, fences, and trees, although it may dismember them in the process. Ruthless pruning is recommended.

Hi Shelly !
These flowers are wonderful ! I love their shape and their color very much ! And you have captured them very nicely, with good details and wonderful colors. Nice POV and composition, and nice dark BG which make the flowers stand out. Well done !

Hi Shelly,
Really a showy trumpet flower! Good details and composition.
I would tried to rid of the wall with a lower dof or bringing the flower far away the wall.
