Deep Pink Spiked Balls

Deep Pink Spiked Balls

My wandering eye most valuable reward came early this year when my photographs of a local flora were included in the Co’s Digital Flora of the Philippines http://www.philippineplants.org –the most authoritative reference of Philippine flora dedicated in memory and honor to the eminent botanist Leonard Co. This is a big inspiration for more photos to follow and a realization of a great opportunity for me to be able to make my humble contribution to the documentation of the flora of the Philippines.

The photo shown here of a species of a local  pandan with fruits that look like deep pink spiked balls is said to be the first of its kind in the CDFP gallery. The rest of the photos can be viewed in this web site http://www.phytoimages.siu.edu/  with this specific image (above photo) at http://www.phytoimages.siu.edu/imgs/pelserpb/r/Pandanaceae_Pandanus_sp_58978.html.

    • Amazing that a species along the road will direct me to an activity that will last probably for the rest of my life – flora of Bulusan documentation. It also opened the way for me to meet and converse with the most exciting people in the field of Philippine Plant Taxonomy and Botany:)
