This is a picture taken in the gardens near the Oxcart factory in Sarchi. We were walking through the park admiring the various plants and flowers and then I saw this bit of vegetation hanging from a tree. I was struck by the colors in Costa Rica and this was just reinforcement of my belief. I would guess this was about 30 centimeters long and as you can see very attractive.

Thanks for sharing this "HELICONIA ROSTRATA".
Good close-up of the beautiful, bright flower hanging in front the blurred, lush green background.

The vegetation is framing well the flowers. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the flowers. The morning light is giving nice tints to the colors. Have a nice day.

Ciao dear Roger,
what a beautiful composition! Very curious and interesting this flower that seems a lot of parrot beaks, perhaps because the colors are pleasant as those of the parrots. Perfect photo quality especially sharpness and the good vividness of the colors. Excellent work, congratulations!
Ciao, have a nice Sunday!
