Hello friends in TL.

I was taking a walk around the lake with my children and spotted this beautiful flower from a strange looking tree I have never seen before. The bottom part of this tall tree is leafless but blossoming with flowers.

Thanks for viewing!

EDIT: Thanks Raimundo for the ID

Couroupita guianensis Aubl. (cannonball tree)

Hi Jusni

Good sharpness & superb use of a shallow dof. The orange petals contrast well against the tiny patch of blue sky, in the upper right corner. Indah sekali, dans terima kasih!

Hi Jusni
A rare find and something I have never seen.
I like the reflection of the pistils on the petals. I guess I can call them pistils not knowing what kind of flower this is.
Unusual and beautiful colors, they look like fruit before opening.

hello jusni
how are you friend?
interesting flower, good light and pov
nice details, good depth
