Cannonball flower by sebastiaoboanerges

Photo make in a urban park at Rio de Janeiro during the summer. The “abricó de macaco” or cannonball tree (Couroupita guianensis) is a tree native to the rainforests of Central and South America. The flowers are also strongly sweet scented and the fruit is spherical and woody. The flowers are born in trunk from large bunches, so I had to point the camera to the sky to make the photo.

Thank you for all comments, votes and faves.
