Bottoms Up

Sometimes, in fact many times, the bottom or underside of a flower is just as pretty as the top.  I certainly think this is the case with this beautifully colored Chinese Lantern (Abutilon).  My friend Jim and I went to the San Francisco Botanical Garden to do some flower photography a couple of months ago.  It ended up being a pretty breezy morning, so it was difficult to take pictures with the plants moving in the wind. We just had to wait for those moments when the wind slowed down.  I was lucky to get a quiet moment with this flower.
