PHOTO - Colorful Tropical Growth on Sanibel

Alone, in the quietude of a nature path on Sanibel Island, within earshot of the ocean, under the mid-day sun - That's where I met this specimen, suspended in mid-air, shouting loud venomous color against a verdant backdrop of palm thicket.  Amazing, the colors of creation, the shapes of nature, the rare wonder of this chance meeting with a living reminder to live life blossoming ostentatiously - we've only got this once...this precious present moment.

Can anyone identify this for me?
