The Strelitzia or more commonly known as the Bird of paradise, was quickly photographed while we filled up at a gas station in Johannesburg on Friday. The province's name is GP and is jokingly referred to as Gangster's Paradise, hence my adapted tongue in cheek title.

I hope you all have a very relaxed weekend.

Thank you for comments and visits to my previous upload.

A great joke in your title for a marvellous treatment of that shot in the "hurry"
This plant is beautiful by colors and form but also it cans grow easily in our south warm countries.
I like a lot the framing and the pic you worked with the moon like a ball the flower could game with..
Excellent Piet

Piet, this is marvelous. The side view is always the best with this flower and the moon behind it is a treasure. As always, your postwork is amazing as well. Stellar shot and wonderful opportunity taken advantage of.
