I'm on a ginger kick!
Red Ginger is not indigenous to Hawaii, but it sure is pretty. The flowers shoot straight up and look like jumbo asparagus spears made of rubies. Not the most elegant description of these beautiful flowers, but it fits. My little Red-Billed Leiothrix are sharing a snuggle atop two Red Ginger spears, blissfully unaware of our presence. I imagine them pausing for a moment before hopscotching along the row of ginger to their next destination. I am glad we caught this moment together!
