Maybe the last....


This may well be the last hibiscus bloom from our yard this year.  I only took these two photos with my phone.  The photo above was cropped.


I don't know why but it almost had almost a flat appearance...in real life.  I don't mean from the photography.


just had to play with the second photo a bit.

That is a really big one. The last flower outdid itself! I love the color!

Ginny Hartzler said...

Wonderful! Huge and kind of flat, like a beautiful flying saucer!

Very pretty. It is rather flat compared to any other hibiscus I've ever seen. Still pretty though. I like how you did that last picture.

i love hibiscus blooms. One of the changes when we built our current home several years ago was going from lots of sunlight to heavy tree coverage. Now I am enjoying seeing other folks hibiscus and other sun-loving flowers thriving and your photos.

Lovely flower shots. It's fun to play with photo once in awhile too.

Steven said...

I am intrigued by the hibiscus' flat appearance! It makes the pistil stand proud with its anthers and filaments. Great capture!
