This bloom photo does appear to be of a Billbergia but I don't think it's correct for B. pyramidalis.

Lin, I think it's correct, it's just hard to tell because it's such an extreme close up of one flower. It might help if you compare it to this picture I took where you can see lots of the individual flowers. Just imagine if I zoomed way in on one and that's what it would look like.

Thanks Melanie! *Blush* I see now, that it's a beautiful close up of a single bloom and Dinu's description even stated that fact.

My camera is an FZ8 Lumix, now in its tenth year. That image was shot in 2012. I have no extra lenses, but the Leica lens - built in - has performed very well, keeping its reputation.
