Snazzy Flower


I posted the photo below a few days ago (Day 3, Trinidad and Tobago) but there's a closer shot of the flower(s). I have no name for the looker since I have no idea what it is. We just saw one of them (at Asa Wright, on Trinidad). I should have asked someone when I was there. Hmm? Either way, other than the orchid we found on Tobago, this was my favorite flower from the trip. Color Carnival , Macro Monday and Today's Flower

You photos are beautiful! I like the little bird in your earlier post too, he really does look like he's frowning!

Fascinating flower. Is is the color or the lighting that makes your photos glow so? Nice shots.
