Artist's Description

Nikon D70s, ISO-200, f/8, 1/160s, 70-200mm lens @ 90mm
Shot in Darwin Botanical Gardens, NT Australia…. (wot??? a straight flower shot from moi?)
Gail Woodbury identified the tree. So then I googled it and found this interesting story: Bazil is a demon from the folklore of Trinidad and Tobago, he is somewhat comparable to the Devil but has some notable differences. Bazil is known as a demon of death and was once a free-roaming entity until a carpenter succeeded in trapping the evil spirit within a huge silk cotton tree – hence the Castle Of The Devil in folkloric tales. Although trapped within this giant tree Bazil is still believed to be an active and malevolent force, with many lesser demons and monsters serving him in exchange for various powers….
oooOOOOoooooooeeerrrrrhhhhhh! betterer and betterer
