Hibiscus flower macro.
this reminded me of something from a sci-fi movie or a text book on astrology. the scale is confusing, its small but initially I thought it was something massive, vast in the sky or in space. (does that make sense?!)nice shot.

A most interesting flower to a photographer, the hibiscus! It offers so many possibilities of exploring it with the camera. I like the richness of the colour and the tiny shadows of the pistyl just peeking from the petal.
