A Bird in the Shadows - Kula, Maui (Explored)

A Bird in the Shadows - Kula, Maui (Explored)
Native to Africa, the colorful bird-of-paradise is cultivated widely on Maui and the other nearby islands. I came across this one in a partly shaded upcountry garden near Kula and could not resist taking a shot. The photo was taken in March 2013, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.
