Very nice pictures.
I have yet to find it in Lalbagh.
I may be wrong but picture number 9 titled ‘Yellow Cheesewood Tree Flower’ to me seems to be Neolamarckia cadamba flower.


Its correct. It took me three years to photograph this flower as it flowers only for 2 weeks, keep missing it.
Its diametrically opposite to the pigeons place, next to the java figs.


Thanks …, It was just a doubt.

Both look really very very similar.
