This is a huge tree with very beautiful flowers. I have posted these flowers once a long ago, butstill don't feel guilty posting a few more again because the flower is such a beautiful one that necessarily needs to be shared here.

I wasn't the only one to get attracted. The moment I placed it on the table, the fragrance of the flower invited a few visitors!

I am happy to share that another photo of the same flower won a place in Azcolt's Photo of the Day. The link is : http://www.azcolt.com/images/open0326_2007.jpg.

Beautiful tree and beautiful flower. Your closeups of the flower are great...though for my taste they look a little oversharpened. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Hiroshi. I note your point about sharpening. I did sharpen a little bit extra this time (about 10% more), but the difference is not much discernible in my monitor - in fact I like them the way look here. I will try to look at these pics in any new monitor at my office tomorrow. Maybe, as you say, it is a matter of taste too.

There is a huge difference between monitors. On my last job when my office monitor was upgraded to a top of the line 19"" Dell, I was amazed how much more sharp and brilliant everything looked in comparison to my previous monitor. Now my home monitor looks a little dull in comparison, so it's a good idea to compare.
