Clerodendrum calamitosum - White Butterfly

A gardener was trimming these plants that were growing on the perimeter of a rain shelter in the Singapore Botanic Gardens. I moved closer to look at these flowers and was pleasantly surprised by the mild fragrance in the air around them. A colourful butterfly, disturbed by my presence, fluttered away. I thought of photographing it. Too slow, too late, too small. I missed the chance. So it was back to these lovely blooms and amongst them I found this sphere-shaped cluster. A reward for letting the butterfly go on its way.
