[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Erythrina crista-galli is a flowering tree in the family Fabaceae, native to Argentina, Uruguay, southern Brazil and Paraguay. It is widely planted as a street or garden tree in other countries, most notably in California (in the United States). It is known by several common names within South America: ceibo, seíbo (Spanish), corticeira (Portuguese) and the more ambiguous bucaré, to name a few. In English it is often known as the Cockspur Coral Tree.

The ceibo is the national tree of Argentina, and its flower the national flower of Argentina and Uruguay.

This species characteristically grows wild in gallery forest ecosystems along watercourses, as well as in swamps and wetlands. In urban settings, it is often planted in parks for its bright red flowers

Hi Roberto.
Very nice photo of the Coral tree.
Cheers Dave.

A nice closeup here, Roberto, with good color. I detect a bit of pixellation, though - perhaps an issue with the upload? Thanks!

Andrew

Hi Roberto,
A good full face image with such warm colors. Interesting tonal range I just find the white patch on the right very distracting.
