Heliconia sp


The leaves of this plant look like the typical Heliconia we have with the large "claws" or "beaks." However this has small narrow flowers that were about 20 cm x 70 cm..


This was deeper in covered jungle in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.


I haven't noticed these before, which means it isn't as common as the larger ones, or I haven't been as observant as I am now. It is quite striking.
