Flowers, Birds and Waterfalls

Isn't that title the epitome of Hawaii?  These are from Waimea Falls park on Oahu.  Even in the "non flowery" season, it's awesome.  Enjoy.

If you look closely, you can see an endangered Hawaiian native bird.

The cannonball tree

I love the frill.

Looking to the sky through the gorgeous old growth trees.
This was in the area that archaeologists have found ancient dwellings.
Who wouldn't want to live under this canopy?

Look close, another bird!

More fuzzy frilly flowers

The falls

Aloha, dragonfly!
