Flowers of Syzygium australe
.
Looking much like a fireworks display, Syzygium australe has many common names that include brush cherry (because of the bright red berries it produces), scrub cherry, creek lilly-pilly, creek satin-ash, and water-gum, and is a rainforest tree native to eastern Australia. It can attain a height of up to 35m with a trunk diameter of 60cm. In cultivation, this species is usually a small to medium-sized tree with a maximum height of only 18m. The flowers attract many birds and insects, especially bees and, believe it or not, there was a bee on this flower which took off just as I pressed the shutter!
