Night Studies, Hibiscus: Flower of the Day, Sept. 22, 2017

(Please enlarge all photos by clicking on the first one.)

When I came home last night, the street light was shining on this hibiscus a day past its prime. That might have been due to the rain, its age, or this tiny snail I didn’t even notice until I put these shots on my computer and zoomed in a bit.  Playing around, I couldn’t decide on a favorite. At one point I turned on a wall lamp a few feet way from it, thus the different light plays. In some of the darker shots, either the moon or a street lamp can be seen through the trees. Interesting playing around with night shots. In some, I intended the grainy, painterly effect. Who would think I could take flower shots every day for years and still be endlessly fascinated? Not a professional.  Just a very engrossed amateur. Thanks, Cee.

Dinner Plate Hibiscus Twins: Flower of the Day, Sept 12, 2017

Cee has requested that I keep on posting new photos of hibiscus and I haven’t disobeyed one of her suggestions yet, so here is yesterday’s crop. Two dinner plate sized hibiscus on my brand new bush by the kitchen door:

Hibiscus Chain

Just pulling one branch over so I could capture more blooms at a time created this seeming hibiscus lei.  Seven bloomed at one time. Riches.

Hibiscus: Dancing With the Stars

When eight of these Spanish Dancer hibiscus blooms showed up in full regalia on the same day, it was hard to pick a winner.  You’ll see more of their sisters on another day.  Don’t want to slight any of them. Click on any flower to see larger views of them all.

This one was huge.  It waited for me a few mornings ago, fully opened and perfect. Ah, nature.
