Hi folks,
The image of this lovely hibiscus flower was taken in my garden. Every time I see this gorgeous flower I am struck with its inexpressible beauty especially the stamens ( the male parts )those yellow things in the picture are anthers that have opened and are discharging yellow pollen.There are five style-branches on top , and each style branch ends in a roundish stigma.In the picture you can see individual pollen grains sticking to the stigma and style branches, and of course those pollen grains carry the male sex germ.

info jointly with backyardnature.net ;)

Image taken in RAW, ISO200 Have a great weekend everyone!

Bonjour George,
Il m'est difficile de reconnaître une fleur d'hibiscus tant l'abstraction est parfaite !!! C'est bien vu et surtout très bien restitué de manière très originale.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Hello George,

Hello George, very artistic and unique photo!
What an awesome looking macro image you have captured. Hard to believe you obtained such wonderful DOF with just an f/4 aperture!! Detail is superb and contrasting red, white and yellow colors are very eye catching. Great job!!
