Just hanging

By AngelaR
Just loved these hanging flowers I spotted in the Monte gardens in Madeira. Are they some kind of Fuschia do you think?

Comments and crits welcome - please look large if you can - thanks.

I was looking through your Madeira shots just a few minutes ago, this is a nice addition. Fine close-up, and I love the dappled light behind. Very fresh and natural.

Very vivid. I have a shot of this flower in Peru, no idea what it was but it caught my eye, I accidentally fired the flash on full in one shot and the flower reflected it back to look like molten silver, weird.

I like the shot, eye catching and good DOF. Let me know if you find out what they are.

They certainly do look like fuschia and very well taken Angela. Love the brilliant colour.

Thank you Andrew for the name - I confirm Google gives me Fuschia Boliviana as well. Certainly all the characteristics of a fuschia, just not one we normally see here.

Thanks to all for the comments - much appreciated.
