Looks beautiful. I would only start to worry if it asks you to feed it!

That second shot in particular is quite spetacular.

Nice! :D It is Hibiscus or Rosemallow.
Sometimes deep red or blue color could be problematic for a digital camera but here it shows very well.
The meaning of beauty is in sharing with others.

Noticing of my "a" and "the" and other grammar
errors are welcome. :D

You know when I went in closer and head on my Nikon did go all funny...I just couldn’t get it to do anything right..this must be due to the color as MacroLuv mentioned

Very Beautiful photos Dave I love the second one. When I was a kid in Florida USA, I used to pick these flowers and suck on the end, they are very sweet. :wink:

Great shot of a Hibiscus flower!
We had some Hibiscus in our shop recently, i think they got too many in and a lot were thrown out!
