Excellent images...They look almost alien like. You have really captured the delicate nature of this flower.

When the first image started painting on my screen, I thought it was a Bottlebrush bush but then I saw it was something else. I don't know the name of it but these shots are beautiful. Your composition and exposure are spot on.

Great shots. really sharp. I really like the first one, the second one has great detail, but the white at the top is a bit distracting.

Bob,

Lovely job. Great DOF control. Like composition also. Don't intend to hijack you post but here are some interesting trivia.

They look very similar to a variety we call "Haole Lehua". The original Lehua blossom is a red flower scared to Pele, the Goddess of the volcano. The word Haole means foreign or alien, thus this is not the original but a foreign version.

Here's the Haole Lehua:



Alos known as the red powder puff (Calliandra inaequilatera).
