Lecho de Pétalos

Category: Spontaneous Moments


Photo and caption by luis nieto

"Cayena", is the name we give to the Hibiscus flower here in Venezuela, it grows almost everywhere and they can show a variety of exotic colors specially in some locations of the Andes due to the fertility and weather of those lands . We were espending a weekend in a hostel in Alto Escuque Trujillo, and while we walked through the gardens I found this Cayena of lilac color just washed by the evening dew and getting this peculiar visitor over its petals.

Location: Alto Escuque, Trujillo, Venezuela.
