Fire in Spring

02 May, 2006

prev: Walk AwayI think this is an exotic variant of the Shoe Flower... the anthers look especially beautiful. Can anyone help in identifying it(the flower) correctly.

KBR National Park, Hyderabad, Kodak Z740, f/4.0, 1/500sec, ISO-80. Entry for the Thursday Challenge - Spring.
p.s. My posts can be infrequent in the coming days... keeping busy at work.. and also lack of new photo-opportunities.

    Brilliant shot. Nice DOF and great composition. I have been seeing this flower growing just outside our society's wall and my attempt to photograph it didn't produce anything as good as this.

    Marvellous shot. I specially liked the way flowers i front are in focus and at the back are going out of focus. The vibrant colors look awesome.
