Hibiscus from today's drive

We headed out for a drive this morning...ended up going down to Goose Pond, which is near Linton, Indiana. We saw several of these around the ponds, but was hard to get close enough to photograph one.
************
I read this post by Sandra....it reminded me of a conversation Roger and I had.

We were on our way home, and traveling backroads...commenting on how good everything looks. 

Well Roger looked out his side of the Rav..and I think he sort of pointed and said 'Until', or so I thought.

I said, "What?"

He says, "Until."

I said "Until what?"

He said, "I said that field is un-tilled."

I said oh...


Well, I sat and told Sandra about it...then I went over to Blackberry Lane and read THIS post and I sat here with tears just streaming...it just cracked me up.

A hibiscus bloom is difficult to photograph because of the depth of the flower. You did a great job. What kind of camera/lens were you using?

lYou have the makings of an Abbot and Costello exchange. I hope you know what I'm referring to.
Beautiful flower shot.
