Bird of Paradise

The flowers on the Bird of Paradise plant are so beautiful but I’ve always found it difficult to photograph them. I think this one turned out exceptionally well.



Here’s the whole plant.

It is refreshing to see such colorful flowers in the heart of the central business district.

I think it is the best angle for this flower..... Once I tried to take some shots of this flower and failed....

The colours are wonderful!

I see that you, too, have lost your list of followers with no photos. Blogspot is working on it, I hope.
