In my desire to be Shadowy Saturday correct I have saved this image of a pink Hibiscus for today Smile I trust it finds acceptance with all my friends Smile
Thanx so much for your votes and comments on my unknown daisy - I have googled it and it seems to be called a Cape Daisy Smile Thanx to Annette [ annettep38] who put me on the right track here Smile
Have a great day with lots of shadows because of the bright sun Smile

This is excellent and perhaps the best of your hibiscus images, Herman. And it fits the day.

Breathtaking, even in the thumbnail image. More depth of field is called for and you got it perfectly! High shutter speed. Must have been super bright, yet no burn - out. I would have used a polarizer,, yet you are a winner without it. Amazing! TG
