Ixora Coccinea

Photograph of Ixora Coccinea, clicked early in the morning, when the dew was still present. You can see the reflections on the water droplets and this gives the photograph a fresh feel. Well sometimes when photographing flowers, sprinkling a few drops of water on the flower is advisable. This gives the flowers a " Just bloomed " feel and makes the photograph more lively.
The plant is commonly called as "Flame of the woods"
Photograph details: 5mm , f/3.2 , 1/160

P.S.: The differences between the widely cultivated I. chinensis and I. coccinea are sometimes obscure as a result of selection for rare or extreme forms. Accidental or deliberate hybridization appears to occur.Warning, this may be the Ixora chinensis instead of I. coccinea. The former has rounded petals and smoother leaves, the latter sharp pointed petals and more 'hilly' leaves.
