Coral Tree - from Abstract Nature Photography series, by award-winning artists Ben and Raisa Gertsberg, aka BRG, who collaborate under the name It's a Beautiful World!
This exotic tropical tree is known as Erythrina, or flame tree, for its bright and colorful flowers. They also grow in abundance in Southern California's gardens and parks. Tree branches resemble the shapes of sea corals.
But the main attraction with this species are the clustered flowers themselves. They usually have brilliant red color and amazing shape, with interesting radial symmetry and are attractive to hummingbirds.
Enjoy stylized dramatic pop art portrait of this remarkable scarlet bloom framed by the tree trunk and branches, against circular patterns on the blue sky.
