Red Aloes

By ColleenA
Good day...
Thank you for your votes and comments on my Aloe vera yesterday Also a big thank you to Isabel (Chinga) for her UA, all much appreciated.
More images of Aloes today...these are a bright red and make a magnificent display. V2 a wider shot and V3 even wider.
Aloe is a genus containing over 500 species of flowering succulent plants.
A Sumerian clay tablet from 2200BC that was unearthed in the Ancient City of Nippur, told of the medicinal values of the Aloe
Have a great and raining in Melbourne

I some times think Mick is bananas Colleen. Never realised they grew in clusters like this, a magnificent display which you've captured perfectly.

3 beautiful flowers great colours.and great attention to detail.excellent capture and beautiful photography WinkWinkWinkWink
Lovely macro, and I LOVE the color!
I see what Mick sees. I had the same thought. This is a spectacular series, Colleen. I have never seen anything like this. Not in Northeast US. Maybe one might in Hawaii.

All three of these are terrific.!!!

Three superb images of the aloe plant -each image giving us something of beauty
to gaze upon. Close up the aloe is so striking and with several plants together, they make
a wonderful display of colour. You've shown the plant in all it's glory here Colleen.
