I took these photos of hibiscus flowers a few months ago at the end of spring. Now that I’m slowly going through the hundreds of pictures on my camera’s SD cards, I get to dig up a few older photos. I love photographing hibiscus blooms because they are so colorful but it can be a challenge to get them in the right angle and light. Most of the time, the photos I take of them are worthless, and sometimes I’m lucky.

Here’s a selection of pink hibiscus, pink and white hibiscus, and purple and light yellow hibiscus flowers. The first shot is the whole flower and the second shot is a close-up. I hope you enjoy these!
