Up and Personal

This close up of the poinciana flower shows the flag petal(the white petal). When the flower opens the flag petal lasts for only one day. Look at the flower behind the flag and see that the white petal is curled up. The flower will stay on the tree for many more days. That's why the tree looks red with only a little speck of white now and then.
