Flower at Alibag, India.
Bougainvillea is native to South America, but is found everywhere in India as a decorative plant. This photo was shot at a Mahabaleshwar resort during Winter 2002. Bougainvillea is interesting for it’s flowers are not as spectacular as the leaves surrounding it are, they turn bright magenta! Shot with Canon EOS Elan IIE with Sigma 28-80 Macro lens.
