Delonix regia (Delonix regia) es uno de los cinco árboles más bellos del mundo.Y, debemos decir, el éxito de Delonix regia es bien bien merecido. Es posible que Delonix regia sea el árbol más brillante del mundo.Por algo se le llama "árbol en llamas", "madera de fuego", "llama roja", "fuego de leña».

Just before midnight, the ship was able to pass under the Forth Bridge
The Royal Navy's new aircraft carrier has left its home port for the first time.
HMS Queen Elizabeth - one of two new carriers being built at Rosyth dockyard in Fife at a cost of more than £6bn - is to begin sea trials.
The ship passed under the Forth Bridge just before midnight.
It is the largest warship ever built for the Royal Navy. The flight deck alone is the size of three football pitches.
Once in service the ship can operate with a crew of 1,000 and 40 aircraft.
The 65,000 tone warship is the Royal Navy's first aircraft carrier since HMS Illustrious was scrapped in 2014.
HMS Queen Elizabeth has to wait for low tide to go under the Forth bridges
The flightdeck is the size of three football pitches
Eleven tugs maneuvered it out of the dock at Rosyth.
It then squeezed through the narrow entrance into the Forth estuary.
Once low tide is reached at about 23:00, the warship will have to lower a mast to make it under the Forth bridges - with just a few meters to spare
The numbers behind HMS Queen Elizabeth
The project to build HMS Queen Elizabeth and sister ship HMS Prince of Wales cost more than £6bn
The aircraft carrier weighs 65,000 tonnes and has a top speed of 25 knots
Its flight deck is 280m long and 70m wide - enough space for three football pitches
The ship is the second in the Royal Navy to be named Queen Elizabeth
It will have a crew of about 700, increasing to 1,600 when a full complement of F-35B jets and Crowsnest helicopters are embarked
There are 364,000m of pipes inside the ship
Both HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales will keep 45 days worth of food in its stores
The entire ship's company of 700 can be served a meal within 90 minutes - or 45 minutes when at action station
Leaving the Rosyth dock will be among the most difficult maneuvers in the sea trials with just 50cm between the bottom of the ship and the seabed in the port
Commanding officer Captain Jerry Kydd said the ship was important for Britain's reputation as a naval power.
"I think there are very few capabilities, by any country, that are as symbolic as a carrier strike capability," he added.
"Submarines you can't see, but these are very visible symbols of power and power projection."
Defense Secretary Sir Michael Fallon said: "This is a historic moment for the UK as our new aircraft carrier takes to sea for the very first time.
"This floating fortress is by far the most powerful ship ever built in Britain that will enable us to tackle multiple and changing threats across the globe.
"HMS Queen Elizabeth is an enduring example of British imagination, ingenuity, invention that will help keep us safe for decades to come. She is built by the best, crewed by the best and will deliver for Britain.
"For the next 50 years she will deploy around the world, demonstrating British power and our commitment to confronting the emerging challenges from a dangerous world. The whole country can be proud of this national achievement. "
