[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A week before Valentine's day I was trapsing around alone in the cloud forest of El Yunque National Park in Puerto Rico, missing my sweetheart Stella. All of a sudden I came upon this heart-shaped plant (name?). Sort of a strange coincidence, but Mother Nature has ways of her own to remind us of things.

A beautiful plant Michael,
Extremely sharp and detailed with vivid colors. The texture of the leaf is very well seen in this fine image!! TFS.
Sorry I can't help with the ID.

Hi Michael,
Una simple pero muy bella composición.
Saludos Ferran.

Clin d'oeil magnifique !
Plus beau que n'importe quel bouquet !
Merci, je n'oublirai certainement pas !

It looks like it's in the nettle family.
