The blurred B/G goes well with that RED & well focused Hibiscus.
The tiny stamens shine out bright.
Lovely EDUCATIVE notes.
Had no idea that it was edible and used in hair care.
Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

Bonsoir Vishal,
Bienvenue sur TN !!!
Agréable publication valorisant bien les sujets dans une belle lumière et sous une relativement bonne profondeur de champ bien que l'arrière-plan ne soit pas très photogénique.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Welcome to TN, Dr Chauhan!
Your debut image of Hibiscus rosa-sinensis has been well composed with good sharpness, colours and contrasts.
One word of advice: cultivated plants/flowers are not permitted here on TN. Same for domesticated animals. Only wild flora and fauna is the norm. Sometimes the moderators remove an image if they think it depicts a cultivated flower/plant or a domestic animal. Members also point it out to them and get such pictures removed.
You seem to be keen on nature, so welcome again and looking forward to your forthcoming nature images.

Ciao Vishal, welcome on TN, great mac ro of lovely flower, fine details, excelent sharpness, wonderful colors and splendid light, very well done my friend, have a good Easter, ciao Silvio
