I like #1 the best. It has the most visual interest, IMO. #2 seems a bit grainy and the others seem too dark.

It is known as "Anthurium".

Wiki stated: TROPICOS lists 1901 types, although some of these are duplicates. It is one of the largest and probably the most complex genus of this family; certainly it is one of the most variable. Many species are undoubtedly not yet described and new ones are being found every year. The species has neotropical distribution; mostly in wet tropical mountain forest of Central America and South America, but some in semi-arid environments. Most species occur in Panama, Colombia, Brazil, the Guiana Shield and Ecuador. According to the work of noted aroid botanist Dr. Tom Croat of the Missouri Botanical Garden, no members of this genus are indigenous to Asia.[2] Deliberately or accidentally however, some species have been introduced into Asian rain forests, and have become established as aliens, but however familiar they might now seem, they are not indigenous.

Thanks, everyone.

@ JJ - Good to be "unbusy" to be out shooting again.

I mistook these for Jack-in-the-Pulpit. Hence, the title. Oh well.
