Regular Random – Bottle Brush Tree

As promised last week, here are some photos I took of Bottle Brush (or Callistemon) flowers still on the tree. I tried to shoot as much as I could in shade, bright, harsh afternoon sunlight is not fantastic for photography, but it can create some interesting shadows. I adore the structure of this plant and…
