Bursting in gorgeous flower blossoms, buds and fern-like leaves (Nov.-Dec.), this shot was taken from my tree in the home garden, Innisfail, Tropical Far North Queensland, Australia.
It is the flamboyant bloom of the exotic Royal Poinciana or Flame tree, as it’s known in Australia. Also known as the Flamboyant (Delonix regia) tree. A native to Madagascar.
