Default Hibiscus

Though small and just growing, the hibiscus plant in my garden has started flowering one or two a day. A few shots I clicked today..

Raghu Be nice to have a garden like that. All excellent shots. The detail that you captured in #2 of the white flower is excellent, very easy to blow out detail on white.

Nice shots Raghu

We also grow those in our garden as well, but much later flowering here. No new growth at all on our plants

Hi Raghu,

for me white Hibiscus is also new.
Very good pix.
My favorite is also #2.

Cheers,

Stefan

Hi Raghu,

very nice, but the black and white dots are a little bit disturbing, are they on the background or on your front lens or sensor?

Cheers,

Stefan
