    Hello Perry,
    When i hear or read the name of this plant, i think always on that beautiful song of Snowy White, "Bird of paradise"! And when i look at this photo i must say that he is really handsome!

    Fine Shot, eventhough I can imagine that there may be possiblities to improve it. Not this Shot but perhaps a 2nd one. Main problem are the branches in Background.
