Deborah Abbott captured this unusual Old World tropical shrub with an old camera (vintage 2004) and new lens (vintage 2010) then other day at the Botanic Garden. The lens focuses so closely that it is almost a macro, and despite its plastic mount and comparatively low price it is remarkably sharp, with excellent color rendition.
