I am going through my collection of images and identifying the plants. I have searched for a very long time attempting to identify this critter. The photo was taken on Maui and I am stumped. Can anyone provide a clue as to the identity of this flower?
Wow what a great response! Thank you all. It looks like the Oleander (Nerium oleander 'Petite Salmon') by robertduval14 (Hub I love "Secondhand Lions!") is the closest representation. Image capture was March 8, 2008 using a Canon EOS 5D with my EF 180mm f/3.5L Macro USM lens @ 1/125 sec f/16, ISO 100 on Maui, upcountry in a display garden in the jungle, maintained. The flowers were about 1-2 inches across and I can see other blooms not yet open behind this blossom so they would be multiples and it looks like the leaves, demonstrating a wonderful bohka, are green and the stems were, um stemey
actually I do not recall any details of the plant. You all have been so kind, Thank you very much.
Here is another image of another blossom but I used the same settings with this image and about the same magnification:
Although the leaves behind it are obviously long and narrow, yet another clue. So it was in the library with the candlestick! But by whom?
