      i gather from this that only sri lankan elephants live on sri lanka and the indian elephant is constrained to the below listed areas. the sri lankan elephant is a sub species of an asian elephant i believe:

      "Thirteen countries still have populations of Asian elephants: the Indian elephant is found on mainland Asia in India, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Thailand, peninsular Malaysia, Vietnam, Cambodia, Burma, Laos, and the very southern tip of China bordering the latter two. The Sri Lankan and Sumatran elephant of Indonesia are restricted to their respective islands. Elephants are also found on the island of Borneo. The range of the Asian elephant once extended as far west as Syria and Iraq east through Asia south of the Himalayas, into southern China and south to Java: the Syrian elephant disappeared more than 2,000 years ago, while the Chinese elephant became extinct even earlier."

      I also think the colors are a bit off in the picture which doesn't help...the sun and clouds were weird on that day I took the picture

      yea..in my forum topic I corrected that. I now think it's a pink something or other or another on like it...the problem is there are so many hybrids...each bulb company has their own names for some and don't list the parent species...plus even if I find the Latin names for the cultivar using the "x" they still don't show up in the species list and the picture will remain "unidentified".

      I see...they have that little red bulge at the base of each flower...the honeysuckle doesn't.
      thanks a bunch!
      someone changed it before to some completely different flower that was not right at all and so I changed it back to honeysuckle because being in the northeast us with hummingbirds it kind of made sense. and they look so similar and I can smell honeysuckle around the yard.

      this was an accident that I left off the location. you'll notice that I've geotagged every photo I put up here so far. also I have been using google to identify species I do not know. I only put help me if I am stuck or cannot figure it out myself. I did not know you had a guide on here. I will try using that from now on. I just don't want you to think I'm being lazy by not identifying because I am doing my best and I do try with every picture I take.
