Devi (Chennai, India) on 12 September 2014 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

This is my favourite variety of hibiscus.This looks like a bell hanging down from the plant !! I think it is called the Japanese Lantern Hibiscus..I am not sure.

CASIO EX-Z60 1/60 second F/4.4 38 mm (35mm equiv.)

Don from Spokane, United States

It makes a very appealing image. I like the flower part and the setting adds to the picture rather than distracting.

@Don: Thank you would have been wonderful had it been on the plant hanging!!!

Elaine Hancock from Rockville, United States

What a gorgeous flower! I have never seen a hibiscus like this! When I was a child, we lived in Hawaii and there were hibiscus everywhere. I was too young to appreciate their beauty. Now I wish that I had them around my house!

13 Sep 2014 1:32am

@Elaine Hancock: Thank you Elaine.. I have seen pictures of the hibiscus from Hawaii and the petals are huge and gorgeous. We have all the varieties here... this is my favourite:) It is always the case..when we have something closeby, we fail to appreciate or value it!!! Realisation comes as we mature:)))
