Scarlet Rose Mallow

This photo of a scarlet rose mallow was taken at the Green Cay Wetlands in Boyton Beach, Florida. “Hibiscus coccineus is a hardy Hibiscus species is also known as Texas star, brilliant hibiscus, and scarlet hibiscus. The plant is found in swamps and marshes on the coastal plain of the Southeastern United States.” Wikipedia

I used the Olympus 75-300 mm telephoto lens at 300mm (600mm equivalent) to separate the flower from the background to produce this nice creamy bokeh, (1/1000 sec, f6.7, ISO 640, handheld).
