Default Hibiscus

I don't know the name of this hibiscus, although I know it has been in Dad's garden for a least 40 years.

Shot taken with my K20d and Pentax-M 50mm f/1.7

Very pretty and quite different from what we have growing here.

Beautiful flower, and I love the depth of field. Just the right balance between the areas in sharp balance, and those areas that are very softly defocused.

Rodney-

I really like the Hibiscus photo. The soft lighting and variable depth of field really work well together.

Have a great day.

Rodney, I agree with Mtnman and Mtclimber, couldn't be said better so I will not even try.

Nice work!

Does anyone know the name of this one, I guess it's difficult to find out as there are so many and it being so old, but I would like to please Dad with some information on it.

Beautiful color. We used to have bright red ones when we lived in California.
