While at Home Depot in Crystal River, Florida, I wandered through the outdoor garden department and fell in love with this beautiful yellow hibiscus. I didn’t have my Canon with me, but my trusty Sony point-and-shoot I keep in my purse did the job! Now I wish I had bought the plant!

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    Wonderful shot of this beauty; looks huge! Yes, you should have bought one. A fave.

  • Thanks so much, Judy. Yes, I wish I had bought this beautiful yellow hibiscus. It was my favorite (I’m partial to yellow), but they also had other beautiful colors as well. Wish I were more of a gardener!
