Bird of Paradise Flower

I tried for a long time to get a good shot of a bird of paradise flower in a natural setting rather than in studio. I found that the background was usually too busy to make the shot stand out. Then one day I saw this one. It was in shade against a white adobe wall and by itself. The final shot turned out almost like a painting due to the light.

Spotted this one backlit and took the shot. The lighting was perfect for making the flower stand out.
