Challenge #202 in the Life in the Natural World series. Hosted by RuthC.
Challenge has finished
This challenge seeks your best images of the flamboyant, very photogenic hibiscus flowers. Often seen in the tropics, they also grow well in temperate climates. Your entry may be of a single flower, part of the flower, or numerous flowers on the hibiscus shrub. Insects or spiders may be present, but should not dominate the picture. I will also accept mallows and other species in the Malvaceae family. Macro and close-ups welcome. Make sure your entry is 1,600px MAXIMUM on its longer side. DPR does NOT resize your photos for you. You need to do this yourself BEFORE you enter a challenge. Entrants with oversize photos will not be invited to re-submit them. Ensure the size is correct the first time!
