We had a rainy and cooler summer this year and as a result, all the local gardens thrived. This vibrant showy Hibisicus bloomed in a large pot all summer in my neighbour’s garden. Most of the time, there was a stunning display of multiple large vibrant red blooms. Hibiscus are native to warm-temperate, subtropical and tropical regions throughout the world. Often hibiscus are grown to attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.
I photographed this Hibiscus twice. I was unhappy with my first attempt, which was done handheld in poor lighting. So I returned early that evening with my tripod and warm sunlight lit this Hibiscus just long enough for me to capture these images. Usually I lead with the best image but I wanted to start this series with the whole flower and follow with what I think are better macro perspectives. My favourites are the last three images. If you have a favourite, let me know. Click on the images to enlarge for better viewing.
