"Attraction" by Kerryn Madsen-Pietsch | Redbubble

Displaying vibrantly under a canopy of leaves in the shade are pendulant bracts of striking red with yellow and green tips of the exotic tropical bloom, in the early flowering stages, of the Heliconia Rostrata (hanging red lobster claw).

The attracted iridescent blue-green beetle species is unknown.
