Yellow Ohia Lehua (Metrosideros polymorpha)

The yellow variety of the Ohia Lehua is not commonly found.
A picture of the more common red variety can be found here: http://www.pbase.com/image/37921040
The Ohia Lehua is sacred because of its relationship with Pele, Goddess of the volcano.
The Ohia Lehua are found abundantly throughout the volcano region.

Nice colors. I always have trouble getting the colors of these 'ohi'a blossoms to look right in photos.
