Kekabu / Kapok tree / White silk cotton tree

Today while picnic by the road side i got the chance to capture some photos of the Kapok tree known as White Silk- Cotton Tree.
The fibre is light,  resistant to water. It is used as filling for pillows, mattress or stuffed toys.
From far the Kapok tree steal your eyes, especially when the fruit is dried,  you can see how the white fibre hang on the branches.
