I'm thinkin' of somethin' orange...

Hawai'is dirt is reddish orange because of the high iron content...the iron has oxidized, making it orange instead of your typical brown dirt. 

 I am participating in a photography challenge this month in which we were to select 4 images that say "orange" to me.  Happily, the assignment was given while we were in Hawai'i, so I had many "orange" moments.  The first four are the ones I submitted, but I had to share the rest too.

Hedychium. A type of ginger flower.

Papaya for breakfast with the sky reflected on the plate.  

Blossom from the "flamboyant" tree: Royal Poinciana
Ixora, a tropical shrub 
Angel's trumpet blossom.  Highly toxic.
