A Crown in the Rain 2 - Ka'anapali, Maui (Explored)

A Crown in the Rain 2 - Ka'anapali, Maui (Explored)
This is a photo of some lovely purple crown flowers after a morning shower. I took this shot on one of my visits to a large butterfly colony near the place we were staying. Monarchs love purple crown flowers, and the large bushes were teeming with butterflies and caterpillars. Indeed, this was one of the few flowers not yet attacked by the voracious caterpillars. The photo was taken in February 2012, with my trusty Olympus digital camera. Enjoy.

Hi Alan,

This is a totally amazing photograph, Alan.... even by your very high standards! I really like this a lot... it looks so lush and the colors so intense yet not over-saturated at all... just perfect! And the water droplets are remarkable... a truly great photograph!

Hope you are well... I've continued with my mild obsession with HDR which can be a slippery slope, as you know. I'm trying to keep it as "natural" as possible but I give in sometimes and lose total control... it's a sad story of addiction to over-saturated colors. :) Maybe there's a 10-Step Treatment Program out there for me! :)

Thanks for your visits to... dare I mention the word out loud?... no, I won't. Take care, Doug.
