Dear all,

To accompany a "Tree Tidbit" item on the SeasonWatch website
(www.seasonwatch.in), we are looking for a photo of Mussaenda
frondosa, showing both flower and bract in the same frame. The subject
of the tidbit is "bracts".

Since research has shown that the white bracts in this species attract
long-distance pollinators, we thought that this is a good species to
use as an illustration of the use of brightly coloured bracts.

If anyone has such a photo and is willing to allow it to be shown on
the SeasonWatch site, could you please email us at the address below?

Many thanks,
Suhel (for SeasonWatch)

Thank you, Garg-ji. We had found a photo then, and had put up a short
post on bracts under Tree Tidbits in SeasonWatch:

Many thanks again,
