Photographer's Note

Some friends have published pictures of Brasilia's "Flamboyant", the beautiful tree very common there. Here my contribution to the theme, Brasília is full of nature colors indeed.

The building in the BG is the "Tribunal de Justiça do Distrito Federal", a court.

The Delonix regia is a species of flowering plant from the Fabaceae family, noted for its fern-like leaves and flamboyant display of flowers. Often grown as an ornamental tree and given the name Royal Poinciana or Flamboyant, it is also known as Krishnachura, Gulmohar, Peacock Flower, Flame of the Forest, Malinche, and Tabachine, and one of several named the Flame tree.

The tree's vivid red and bright green foliage make it an exceptionally striking sight.
