A Mo’zArt

A moment of Art captured on the field, among the hundreds that the Earth paints everyday… This is a ‘kanakambaram’, a Firecracker flower. Ripe seed-pods ‘explode’ with a characteristic sound (hence the name) when humidity is high, often when its going to rain. The seeds find their place under the sun, nourished by the moist air and fed by the coming rain.
