The blue spike is wonderful! I'll have to be more observant as I haven't noticed that in these flowers.

Hmm with the thumbnail visible I actually thought that was a bird. When I reached this page I realised it's a beautiful flower! These are awesome colors!

Amazing photo. I must admit that I was actually looking for a bird in the pic, I didn't know that there are flowers called bird of paradise...
