Default Walking Along a Country Road--Hawaii

Yesterday afternoon, we got caught for a couple of hours without a car, so I took off on foot along the country road on which my son lives. You don't have to walk far to find beautiful flowers in Hawaii.

I thought these were rather unique. I have no idea what they are.

I know this one...a ginger flower

Another "I have no idea"....but this three-foot wide plant featured a huge spike at the center. I think it's going to be another leaf, rather than a bloom.

All were shot with the Tamron 28-75 Di LD Macro f/2.8.

Your third one is very cool looking - I have no idea what it is either. And your first one, the red hibiscus sure came out nicely, too.

No mistaking it...you are definitely not in Kansas any more! I really like white Hibiscus as well as the unnamed last image!

Hi Paul!
I see you are enjoying your holiday (not a big surprise).
The flower in the third picture is a Heliconia pendula, common name Lobster Claw (wonder why). It's native to tropical America.
The hibiscus variety in your second picture is a Swan Lake, I've got it as a pot flower.
Post more!
