Artist's Description

This was taken in my front yard with my Canon 50D and a 50mm prime lens in full sunlight RAW.
ISO: 400
Aperture: F/16
Exposure: 1/250
I added a dark texture layer to diffuse the harsh sun and darken the background. I’m happy with the results.

What is this plant?
Caesalpinia pulcherrima is a species of flowering plant in the pea family, Fabaceae, that is native to the tropics and subtropics of the Americas. Its exact origin is unknown due to widespread cultivation.1 Common names for this species include Poinciana, Peacock Flower, Red Bird of Paradise, Mexican Bird of Paradise, Dwarf Poinciana, Pride of Barbados, and flamboyan-de-jardin.

It is a shrub growing to 3 m tall. The leaves are bipinnate, 20-40 cm long, bearing 3-10 pairs of pinnae, each with 6-10 pairs of leaflets 15-25 mm long and 10-15 mm broad. The flowers are borne in racemes up to 20 cm long, each flower with five yellow, orange or red petals. The fruit is a pod 6-12 cm long.

Red Bird of Paradise is the national flower of the Caribbean island of Barbados, and is depicted on the Queen’s personal Barbadian flag.
