These are cardinal flowers (Lobelia cardinalis) growing in the sand at Oka beach near Montreal. The bright red wild flowers are pollenated by humming birds. It's the first time I have found them so I was enormously pleased when I stumbled upon them. (I was looking for frogs at the time). Oka is a fresh water beach on a bulge in the Ottawa river near where it joins the St Lawrence river called the Lake of Two Mountains. Cardinal flowers are in the lobelia family. I didn't have a camera with me so these were taken on a phone camera.
