    Nice picture. Is it true that these blooms can cause earthquakes? :-)

    I'm sorry to disaggre Ernie, but I think it's not an orchid tree. As far as I know, orchid tree are from the genus Bauhinia (mostly Bauhinia variegata, an asian species, family fabaceae), the tree on the picture seems to be (at least for me) a Tabebuia sp , from the family bignoniaceae; maybe Tabebuia impetiginosa.

    By the way, very nice picture!

    Regards,

    Henrique
