Flowers of Fiji

I have no idea what this flower is called, but I thought it was so pretty I wanted to share it with you.

I found it in Nadi on the Viti Levu island of Fiji. To me it is a very special colour of blue. I think it was about 3-5 cms wide.

There were some beautiful flowers growing in Fiji, especially the Hibiscus. I had hoped to be able to see more Frangipani flowers, but the season was ending and I only managed to photograph some, but they were high up in the tree. I will post some of them at a later time.

Hi Janice

Superb graphism & attractive color, in this excellent macro shot of the flower. Good dof & sharpness.

Great photo Janice!
I will try to find out what this is and follow up.
I would also like to refer you to one of mine (Clematis) and ask you whether you have had a similar experience with the blue/violet colours. The digital camera and the eye do not "seem" to reveal exactly the same colour wavelengths. No one has replied to my query yet.

hehe very cute flowers , beautiful color, nice picture janice

Oh my, this is just beautiful, Janice! I love macro shots of flowers and this is a great one. The colors are so bright against the dark background. Excellent....:O)

Thanks to share those beautiful blue flowers... Excellent macro Janice...

What a powerful color! I love this blue!

Hello Janice,
an excellent saturated colour. a very sharp and clear image. Positioning of the flowers is very well selected.

Nice to share,
