Bird of Paradise flower (not an orchid)

Bird of Paradise flower

While in Hawaii last year, visiting Shane and Roxanne in Kailua, Eliza and I found this orchid Bird of Paradise flower behind a few garbage cans near a burger joint we were having dinner at. It just shows you that beauty runs deep in Hawaii.

Update: I stand corrected. Mike Cohen commented that this is actually a Bird of Paradise flower. I had original marked this as an orchid. I don’t mind being corrected and I very much appreciate Mike taking the time to let me know. Thanks Mike.
