Love the way this 'hangs' in space. I adore the 'tendrils' of the blossom. You've vividly captured all that is best about a eucalyptus tree.

@DULCIE: Thanks Dulcie. It is a photo of a tree in my garden that I find hard to pass by without whipping out the camera when it is in blossom. I have just planted a second one that I hope has a brighter more orangy colored bloom.

@Jules: It is a much loved eucalyptus species, often used in gardens because of the prolific and bright blossom. This photo is of Drouin, a town known for the Ficafolia display that lines the main street. Thanks for your visit!

I always admired the fabulous "constuction" of eucalytus blossoms, so fragil and exotic! this is an excellent picture!
