Dear Friends,

 

Vanakkam! Greetings from Chennai.

 

I recently had a chance to visit a reserve forest (Nanmangalam) in Chennai. I was amazed to see a good number of interesting insects fluttering around. It is a dry shrub jungle, with few interesting wildlife.

 

We found these little brightly Coloured Bottle Brush-Like Flowers on a shrub during the trail.

 

Would be grateful for any info shared on this.

Ramjee--

 This is Dichrostachys cinerea, native to the Caribbean, probably an escapee locally in your area.
