[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
These are the flowers of an African tulip tree. Photo was taken from Alona Beach in Bohol. The tree is native to West Kenya and Uganda. It is evergreen with large dark green leaves to about 5 inches. In it's homeland, it is a massive tree to 60 feet. African Tulip Tree is also sometimes called: fire tree, flame of the forest, fountain tree. The main attraction are the large bell-shaped orange-red flowers with a yellow border on the petals. Flowers are seen in late winter. The blooms are softball sized, very showy and face looking up to the sky. After blooming, large pods are grown which later release winged seeds.

I have included in the WS, a shot of Alona Beach shoreline where this tree is growing.
