The Light Within

Stemmadenia litoralis. I snapped this picture because I really liked the way the sun was lighting the tubular base of the flower. It all seemed a little magical. Admittedly, I failed to figure out what kind of flower it was. However, with a little help from my Facebook friends and Fiyero Akitia in particular, it now has a name.

Stemmadenia litoralis is a small, tropical, salt tolerant tree that is found in habitats ranging from Mexico to Columbia.
