Red in Yellow by Jose Juniel Rivera-Negron

It was a beautiful day in the Island of Puerto Rico. While visiting the place that saw me grow up as a child, this beautiful flower was there, probably the only one of its kind in that specific area. Didn’t think of it twice to shoot this Hibiscus flower and…’cliiick’.
