I have a hibiscus in my backyard and it’s one of my most favorite plants in my garden. It has gorgeous flowers that are huge – much bigger than my hand – and the color of them is just stunning.
I went outside the other morning just to enjoy looking at them before it got too hot outside. Once the heat of the day hits they kind of wilt up and look a little sad. In the morning though they’re gorgeous! Anyway, I went to look at them and took my camera out with me so that I could snap a few photos and not only did I get the flowers but I managed to get a bunch with the bees flying around them!
It’s pretty fascinating to watch the bees – they hop very quickly from flower to flower and never stay very long in one place. I ended up turning my shutter speed all the way up to 1/4000 just to capture them without blurriness!!
