An interesting environmental image that represents the lush forest wonderfully.
Out of curiosity … what type of tree is this?....neat looking flowers!

Thanks John - I have no clue what kind of tree - but those are not flowers - Those are all Bromeliads which grow on the tree as is most of the other stuff on trees - Trees are foundation for tons of different plants especially in Cloud forests where lots of the water of life comes as clouds pass by
The red looking Bromeliads  actually have a purple flower which is not that visible from this distance

Another point I took this as a pano  because I was only carring my 500mm lens on that walk and it was only way to get entire tree in and I was pretty far away

Quite the amazing shot, given that this is a tree. It has so much else going on, I can hardly see the tree for the colors. Which is not a criticism - it is a matter of some wonderment.
