[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
the Hoya plant – climbing, clambering, creeping, or wax-stemmed plants with thick leaves.

Known as the Hindu rope plant or wax plant, Hoya has been enjoyed for decades, perhaps because fanciers enjoy their easy going indoor dispositions.

Their wheel-like clusters of waxy or porcelain flowers with stars in their crowns, are sometimes deliciously fragrant.

The Hoya was named in honor of Thomas Hoym, gardener to the Duke of Northumberland.

Bom dia Tsilla,
A good close of this strange pinky flowers.
Good catch, simple and beautiful. Clear and clean.
Good DOF.

Awesome colors of those flowers. Good lighting and nice details. It's too bad about the light background, otherwise well done, tfs.

Splendid macro of the Hoya plant, I like very much the colors of the flowers.
The sharpness is good and perfect light, superb détails too.
