Wild Poinsettia

On my way to the beachfront from the resort's payag-payag, I passed by its forest, which was not really much as there was no variety of plants.  But I did see birds flitting among the trees' branches but they were flying so fast and wary of any movement that I failed to take their photos.

In that forest, this red-and-green-leafed plant caught my interest because it looked like a poinsettia.  Interesting, as it was summer and I have never seen such a plant before.  

I made a search online and though I'm not really sure, I think this plant is a wild poinsettia.

This blog from Marta shares that the wild poinsettia's milky sap can be used as bush medicine and is a remedy for warts and corns.
