I love flowers and I love to photograph them but unfortunately I only know the names of very few. This photo was taken in Açores - Terceira Island. I tried to find its name on the web but gave up. I didn't find anything. Once more I hope someone could tell me.

Look here to see many more.

Gosto de flores e especialmente de as fotografar, mas infelizmente apenas sei o nome das mais vulgares. Esta foto foi tirada na Ilha Terceira - Açores - e, apesar de ter procurado na net o nome dela, não consegui descobrir. Fico à espera que alguém me saiba dizer.

Espreitem outras flores aqui.

Olá Dulce
Vejo que já lhe socorreram.
É uma flor muito interessante e bastante diferente, pelo menos por aqui.
Abraços, Denise

I agree that it is pointsettia. The center part is the actual flower, and the red parts are called bracts, although they look like petals they are not. I love the little yellow circles, looking like little mouths.
