This vibrant picture looks like a work of art created by a painter with an eye for colour.

In fact, it shows the spectacular effect created when 'rainbow' eucalyptus trees shed their bark, revealing bright splashes of green, orange and purple beneath.

The myriad shades on the trunks were captured in close-up by a nature photographer on the island of Kauai, Hawaii.


Wow, spectacular they sure are!

"I warn you, whoever you are, oh you who wish to probe the arcanes of nature, if you do not find within yourself that which you seek, neither shall you find it outside.
If you ignore the excellencies of your own house, how do you intend to find other excellencies?
In you is hidden the treasure of treasures, Oh man, know thyself and you shall know the Universe and the Gods."
