Bird of Paradise flower, detail

Detail of a Bird-of-Paradise flower.

 

These are common ornamentals in Southern California. The flower is about 5 inches/one and one-half dm in length. They grow on a plant that is up to two yards/meters in height. As you can see, this one also served as a base for some spider's work.
