Photographer's Note

A beautiful flower taken in the Mamiku Gardens on the Eastern side of St Lucia. There is no trickery with the light here. I was just lucky to have the flower in full sunlight while the background was in shade. A telephoto lens (zoom set at 200mm) helped to fuzz the background and restrict the angle of view to just the dark area.

I'm not a botanist, so I don't know the name of the flower - maybe someone out there can enlighten us.
