Time to change subjects ;D last series was depressing.
Maybe someone on Am3 knows the real name of this amazingly flowered bush.
super takumar 55mm at f/4 as far I remember... had a fun afternoon with the tak at the park.

Just found the name of this exotic beauty:
It´s Erythrina crista gallii - a flowering tree in the family Fabaceae, native to Argentina, Uruguay, Brazil and Paraguay. It is widely planted as a street or garden tree in other countries, most notably in California (in the United States). It is known by several common names within South America: ceibo, seíbo (Spanish), corticeira (Portuguese) and the more ambiguous bucaré, to name a few. In English it is often known as the Cockspur Coral Tree, in german Korallenbaum or Hahnenkammbaum.
