A fantastic one to be able to take such a close-up as this….
The hibiscus is lovely Herman......and V2 is an almost nasty image......pretty sharp, guy.

Beautiful well detailed Hibiscus and lovely colour Herman, V2 is that cocktail stick for your martini. Wink

Two great images Haerman, v1 shows off the detail of this beautiful flower, v2 has great interest(glad you didn't post the little beasties impaled on the spike)!

Good morning Herman; I think I am up before the birds this morning [I'll regret it later] the sun is shining and the day looks promising.

V1 is a good crop, offering great detail and I have to say, I thought V2 was a prune, but what do I know [don't eat fruit it's a yuk to me] then I realised punes start life as plumbs; interesting life cycle, if a little gruesome, but as always immortalised by yourself so well.

The first shot is a beauty Herman, lovely colours and pin sharp.

The second is also excellent but so intriguing, I've never seen anything like that from birds before, marvelous.

V2, keeping a snack for later I guess. The thorns on a thorn tree are really vicious looking.

You and your Canon PowerShot have captured such excellent detail in V 1: a very fine macro shot of the stamen.
And V 2 evidence of such strange behaviour ..... have never heard of such before.

A huge and well coordinated bird impaled the olive, suppose he will come back and nibble on it here and there---- Good close ups here!

So...I have to choose between 1 and 2, that's not fair! I am more inclined towards V1, however V2 has a better story behind. The flower is simply lovely and your take very elegant and balanced.
