Artist's description:

This specimen of the puya (Lat. Puya berteroniana), a large bromeliad normally native to Latin America, thrives at the Mt Tomah Botanic Garden in Australia. When my friend and I first saw it, we nicknamed it "Frida Kahlo flower", for its unusual shape and bright blue plastic-looking flowers are very much in Frida's style. I just managed to catch the moment of a shy local wattlebird feeding on its nectar. Its tail shape and colour resemble the puya spikes!

Most of my images are available in a range of sizes and on different kinds of photographic and fine art paper, including Inkjet Pro Fine Art Paper320gsm, Inkjet Hahnemuele Bright White Rag Paper 310gsm, Inkjet Canson Rag Photographique Paper 310gsm, and Inkjet Hahnemuele Museum Etching Paper 350gsm. Please ask me if you wish to place a special order and I will do my best to fulfil your wishes. Please note that prints on fine art paper will be shipped flat to avoid damage to the extra sensitive print, which may slightly increase the shipping cost. I will provide you with a special shipping quote prior to your placing the order if applicable.
