Red flowering gum bloom

Been driving by this tree for awhile, ablaze with reddish orange blooms. Originally thought it was some type of Erythina. Closer look & it was a flowering gum tree. The wind was blowing & I was impatient. Snatched a small flower & brought it home. Tried some backgrounds & this is what I came up with.
Fabulous!

Wow, that must be some incredible looking tree! When I first saw this picture, I thought this was some kind of sea creature in the water. It's gorgeous. Great shot!

Thank you so much for your comments! I have been moving back to the city from the lake this week, so I haven't had a lot of time for commenting, but, I have taken the time to look through your photos, and they are some of the most exotic and beautiful pictures I have seen. I need to study them some more, except for the big spider! Big fear of that guy!! You do a fabulous job!
