I know this has been 'done to death', but I find it difficult to resist taking images of hibiscus, they are such stylish blooms.

Two exceptionally beautiful images of the like I have never come across, stunning crisp and fine detail, glorious and warming colour, coupled together in two extremely fine compositions. Version II is my outright winner.

V1 is, without a doubt, one of the best macro shots of a Hibiscus I have ever seen. In fact I've never seen thr stamen this close before. Did not even know what it was...!Tongue

v1 has the impact, the colour and detail is gorgeous. v2 is more of a record but is so beautifully composed and captured. Two separate uploads for me and worth a vote each.
