Nope, Hand held.

And, I found out that it is a "Hibuscus Mutabilis"

a little levels/curves and USM adj. would really help these.

You can bet that it did.



Well, I may play with the second one some. I actually just did these as snapshots to try and determine what kind of tree this is.

Thanks,

All I can say is that it's a pretty tree - good thing I didn't hazard a guess as to it's type because I would have been way off.

And you are one steady shooter! Well done.

Nice shots of a beautiful tree, Eddy. I thought it might be some sort of hibiscus but thought it was odd that it was blooming this late. Oh well, enjoy it while ya got it!

Thanks for sharing!
Ron

I was interested enough to look this up, as it is not a typical mallow. It was introduced from China and has gone wild in Florida and Texas. A common name is "Cotton Rose" (It is neither a cotton nor a rose, but that is why we have scientific names). It looks like a nice plant to have.
