The pistil of a hibiscus flower sticks out well past the actual flower. Here it is in macro.
my first thought was those things that cheerleaders wave about (whatever they are called). Another stunning and gloriously coloured macro. nice one.

@Rhys: Thanks, Rhys. I think those things cheerleaders wave are called pom poms. But not sure.
My goodness... Love the colours on the Pistil and the yellows make it so warm! the background looks cool too!

Michael, you are one TALENTED writer!
I've just finished reading "A wild thyme in the wilds..." and loved it! From your friend, Marta, to Hildegard, the nun, to cooking mushrooms with caraway, I'll think about this until I can read another. I like your style!

Where do you find all those fancy hibiscus beauties in Saudi Arabia, Michael? Do they grow in your hotel compound? Wishing you a pleasant Friday, Eva
2 May 2008 10:47am
@givethemhell: I live in a walled compound and they have been planted all over the grounds. Thank you, Eva.
Such a simple, yet, complex structure for something with a lifespan of less than 24 hours ... terrific detail in this shot, Michael ... you've really mastered the art of macro photography!
