Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Back in May, I posted a photo of buds on a branch of a Royal Poinciana tree in my garden. The trees now are in full bloom, bearing masses of brilliant red-orange blossoms. In this wide-angle photo of my back garden, you can see the Royal Poincianas in the background. Today's photo shows what an individual blossom looks like.
