Award Shortlist   


One of the many reasons for travelling to Vietnam was to go in the jungle to see some wild flowers and hear the songs of the birds.

Visiting the ruins of the Champa temples of My Son near Hoi An was a good choice as I was lucky to see some beautiful flowers along the track leading to the ruins as well as among the ruins.

Unfortunately I do not know the name of any of these flowers. I would be grateful if a botanist could enlighten me about these amazing flowers.

I hope you like this little selection. Thank you for leaving a comment and your time.

Have a very nice sunny day,

These are delightful, Jean-Noel, I don't know the flowers from that part of the world, apart from V.3, which loks very much like a miniature hibiscus. Carol

An interesting selection of flowers from Nam. No idea what they are called though. A touch of fill flash wouldn't have come amiss IMHO as they appear to have been shot in low light condition.
