This captures so many of the things I love about seeing hibiscus blooms in strong, directional light, and seeing those crazy stamens and stigmas, in any light. Love it.

Thank you! Here's the original... I tilted it quite a bit to the right to be able to catch the center shadow and the sun coming through the back of the top petal, which is now at the right side of the banner. I swear I look at photos entirely differently now when searching for a good banner! Hilarious!
