Before it perishes-93E3501

Shot in my Butterfly and Hummingbird Garden, Strelitzia  is a genus of five species of perennial plants, native to South Africa.  A common name of the genus is bird of paradise flower / plant, because of a resemblance of its flowers to birds-of paradise. In South Africa it is commonly known as a crane flower and is featured on the reverse of the 50 cent coin. It is the floral emblem of the City of Los Angeles; two of the species, Strelitzia nicolaiand Strelitzia reginae, are frequently grown as house plants.

Some of the “petals” started to die, and before it perishes entirely, I took that shot.
