Exotic flower
Lens: Pentax 18-135mm @135mm Camera: Pentax K-5 Photo Location: Fern grotto, Kauai, Hawaii ISO: 3200 Shutter Speed: 1/200s Aperture: F5.6

I remember as a boy my father's fascination with photographing flowers; I don't think I really understood that until recently when my wife and I traveled to Hawaii on our 50th wedding anniversary. I encountered this specimen when it was raining and the wind was blowing, so I shot it at a faster speed and more open aperture; that kicked the ISO up to 3200. I was counting on the K-5's high ISO abilities to give me a usable shot. I cleaned it up somewhat with Photoshop Elements 7, and I think the results turned out pretty good. The K-5 is an amazing camera. If anyone can identify this flower, I'd like to know what it is.
