Encounter with the Bird of Paradise

Bird of Paradise - Strelitzia reginae
Family : Musaceae - Banana family
It is not in New Guinea that I encountered the Bird of Paradise, but at the roof-top of a shopping mall in KL called "One Utama".  The place was called "Secret Garden" where a large collection of tropical plants are housed in a garden space at the very top of the shopping mall.  Seeing it for the first time in full bloom and healthily grown I was struck awesome by its colour and likeness of a bird in flight.
