|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Chorisia speciosa is a rounded, deciduous tree with widespreading branches which are green when young and covered with spines, often becoming grey and sometimes losing their coarse, sharp spines. Young trees can have a columnar or upright form. The spiny trunk is unusually thick and remains green even on older trees. Chorisia speciosa or Floss-Silk tree can reach 50 feet in height with an equal or greater spread, and grows rapidly the first few years, then more slowly.|

Excellent photo. Really good perspective.
