Royal Poinciana (Delonix regia)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
Last week for Ruby Tuesday I posted a photo of a single Royal Poinciana blossom. Here is another, surrounded by another and another and another! When these trees flower, they are completely covered with a dense profusion of blossoms. At this time of year, when seen from a distance, Royal Poinciana trees look like bright scarlet clouds perched on a trunk.
