Pink Backlit

Walking our little chiweeny (dog) at sunset, I passed by the first hibiscus bloom I've seen this year.
Not completely sure if it is a true hibiscus--very small flower.
Right near sunset a tiny bit of opening in the dense leaves allowed a spot of sun to hit the back of the flower.
Like a searchlight beam it lit up the inside.
I had to rush the poor dog back to the house and grab the nearest available camera before the sun disappeared.
Had a bit of fun taking shots of this before the sun left it.
Angky.

That's an interesting macro shot. I really like the light bleeding through the bloom and the illuminated tips. I'm not sure that this is a hibiscus? The way this is presented, it could have been an abstract. Love the varying pink colors.

I reallly like the resulting image from your rushed opportunity. The light really worked nicely with the selective focus. It looks like there is a tiny, microscopic light back in the recesses of the flower.

Yes, it could have been presented as an abstract--and probably should have been labeled such.
But I have this internal problem! I know that I don't know much about photo imaging, and abstract seems a bit "above my pay grade" so to speak!
And I do love to find things in nature, so I default to "Nature" by nature, I guess!
Thanks for your note!
Angky.

Thank you, Todd.
Occasionally I find a bit of light coming in from the backside of a bloom like these. When I find that, I spend a lot of time working it all kinds of ways.
Glad you liked it.
Angky.

Glad you assured me of which it is--stamens or pistils!
I have a very bad record of getting those confused!
But wait a minute--both are in focus! So I'm still confused!
Thanks for the note!

Thank you, Tony.
I noticed an uncorrected blemish in the image after I posted it.
I thought of you and wished I had made a more perfect image of it--striving for the best!
Appreciate your inputs.
Angky.
