Burgmansia sanguinea in all its Splendor
These were growing around a spot famous for occasionally hosting the legendary Swordbilled Hummingbird (longest bill to body length in the bird world). Unfortunately, no Swordbills appeared, but the flowers that attract them (and are apparently the evolutionary reason for those huge bills) were quite spectacular in their own right.
''Brugmansia sanguinea'', the red angel's trumpet, is a species of South American flowering shrub or small tree belonging to the genus Brugmansia in tribe Datureae of subfamily Solanoideae of the nightshade family Solanaceae. It has been cultivated and used as an entheogen for shamanic purposes by the South American Indians for centuries - possibly even millennia.
