Flower Photo: Fringed Hibiscus
These delicate flowers were blooming in many locations, before the last typhoon.
One day, as the wind started picking up, I went out and rescued this one.
A black background was utilized to make the colors pop, for you.
Indoors, using available light, I shot it without any wind interference.
The flower is also known as Spider Hibiscus, Coral Hibiscus or, Japanese Lantern.
I sort of like the Latin name: Hibiscus schizopetalus
They seem to have all blown away during the last typhoon.
My guess, is that they are really hardy plants and will spring to life again soon.
