Flowers and Plants of Kaziranga and Nameri

Here are the flowers and plants (of course, often un id'd) that I enjoyed seeing in Kaziranga and Nameri...

Update: Arun tells me this is the Spider flower:

That's the BAUHINIA PURPUREA, which will soon bloom in Bangalore, too:

And, from the same family the BAUHINIA ALBA:

Some un id flowers that are a delightful mauve:

I never found out if these are buds or fruits:

These were fruits, I never knew their name, but they attracted a lot of birds:

These yellow flowers were small and delicate...

These white flowers look like the Flocurtia that blooms in Lalbagh:

These small purple flowers had a lot of cotton stainer bugs over them:

These un id fruits were clumped together on the tree-trunk:

These red flowers and the grass gave a delightful "bouquet" effect:

These white flowers were really the "stars of the forest"!

Even leaves looked stunning in the forest light:

And one tree just had showers of flame....

Even coffee-berries (yes, they have coffee, too, in Assam!) looked beautiful in the sunlight!

Will post some more, once I am back from Top Slip...but then, I hope to get some more beautiful images from there, too!

Have a great weekend, everyone.
