The Gumamela flower is also commonly known as the hibiscus flower. Its composition is a lot like every other flower whose sole purpose is to help a plant reproduce. Its distinguishing features are large petals, often forming a trumpet-shape and a prominent stamen tube that is unique to the gumamela flower.

Hope everyone will enjoy...

By the way, thank you again for the great comments and votes of my last upload "The Philippine Goat". Very much appreciated!

Excellent detail and sharpness Fred, not easy to get right with what is primarily a white subject. You can almost feel the texture - looks very silky, well done.
