One of the things that we enjoy when traveling to destinations such as Central and South America are the beautiful flowers. We have gone to botanical gardens and seen some amazing flowers, but there is something special about seeing them in the wild. They have such vibrant colors, especially all of the red varieties. They are often very unique and different than what can be found throughout other regions of the world. We also find that photographing these flowers provide very striking pictures as they tend to almost have a 3-D quality to them at times. Here are a few of our favorite photographs of these tropical flowers.
