Beautiful photographs. Close up is looking great.


Nice pictures of a Caesalpiniaceae member. I have seen this in Amboli/Kolhapur/Panhala etc. Don’t know the closest place from Pune where one can find it. Has anybody seen it in Tamhini or May be near Satara ghat sections?


Once again its a endemic plant to western ghats.

Not sure about presence bt im searching same plant at Purandar Fort !!


I have seen Wakeri at the Raigad fort base.

Nice photographs !!! Closest to Bombay, have seen it flowering on the climb up to Irshalgadh, which is a fort on the left of the Bombay – Pune Expressway just before the turning at Chowk for the road leading to Matheran.

Have this on my property at Shahapur. Sending a few photographs (8 images).

Very beautiful set of photographs !!
