large orange bloom, 6", fragrant
These flowers are very high in the tree and I'm really zoomed in for this photo. I spotted these in the spiny forest of Ifaty. The flowers are visited by moths and bats.

Gorgeous flower, thank you for sharing.
What a flower! It looks like a bird!
Wow, I want to see it in real!!
Wow, beautiful! I'd never seen a picture of the flower before.
Beautiful flower. Incredible tree.
Yes, still here. Might have one or two more dental mission trips to parts of the Island.
Something for you to search out, if you're still in Madagascar.
I didn't know that they had flowers. Mighty flowery for a drab, but extraordinary tree.
