Request ID for this tree.The tree was v. far off.Pic has been
processed to throw leaves into relief.Flowers looked cream-coloured at
that distance.Plays host to a large number of birds.
Pic taken-17-09-09 in Bannarghatta Forest.
Thanks.

Looks like Acacia leucophloea, in bloom. (leuco=white; phloem=bark, was the stem-bark greyish white?).
