Hibiscus Exposed by Matt Anderson

Hibiscus Exposed by Matt Anderson

With lots of hot summer weather and decent rain, the hardy hibiscus can grow quite robust in our Midwest climate. This particular year yielded nearly a dozen flower blooms like this. Many images similar to this will have been taken in a studio setting. I felt the flower was too beautiful to remove (and prematurely kill) for a picture. So without plucking this amazing display of color and texture, I setup the shot, and waited for what seemed a day for the flower to fully bloom. With a break in the afternoon winds, I captured a real testament to the beauty in nature. Milton, Wisconsin
