The beautiful Adansonia digitata-baobab flowers at dawn. These are special to me because I could see them at different times zones at the Babasaheb Ambedkar University, Aurangabad. I have never been  able to capture them in full bloom at Mumbai being bat pollinated they fall off early morning. The tree as most would know has  an inverted trunk, base being much thicker than the upper portion mainly due to the function of storage of water. Several interesting links and info. can be found in our database.  
Wishing Efloraofindia  a very happy and bountiful 2011 !
