Guava is a messy yet delicious fruit that is most popularly found as the "G" in POG juice and reduced into dessert sauces or yummy cakes. But I think the best way to eat guava is picked straight from the tree, warmed slightly by the sun and smeared all over your face and hands.
Here we have two 'Akepa birds contemplating what to sample first: fruit or flower... ‘Akepas are amazing with bright orange plumage on the male and a duller yet adorable peachy green color on the female. The 'Akepa is a native bird of Hawaii and the orange 'Akepas are found on Big Island Hawaii. These two ‘Akepas found the perfect guava branch to enjoy some shade, snuggles and fresh fruit. Although they prefer nectar to fruit, I'm sure these two will make an exception today. There’s even a couple of guava flowers to add to the ambiance. So lucky to be in Hawaii!
