Photographer's Note

Name : Baobab flower of the tree andansonia digitata

Adansonia digitata (Baobab, Afrikaans: Kremetart, Sotho: Seboi, Tswana: Mowana, Tsonga: Shimuwu, Venda: Muvhuyu) is the most widespread of the Adansonia species on the African continent, found in the hot, dry savannahs of sub-Saharan Africa. It also grows, having spread secondary to cultivation, in populated areas. English common names for the Baobab include dead-rat tree (from the appearance of the fruits), monkey-bread tree (the soft, dry fruit is edible), upside-down tree (the sparse branches resemble roots) and cream of tartar tree.
