Cannonball Tree – Update

Welcome to Big Mountain Photography

(Dashan Sheying –大山摄影)

My earlier post revealed one of the most beautiful, intricate flowers I’ve seen here in India from the Cannonball Tree, i.e. Couroupita guianensis.  I first ran across the beauty of the tree’s flower on a photowalk two years ago at a Shiva Temple. I’ve had my eyes out ever since without success.  Well after finding one last Sunday, today I found a great specimen only 100 m from my office on campus.  How did I miss this one under my nose?
I’ve shared images of the flower yet let me share images of the tree and it’s “Cannonballs“.
