A Flower Within A Flower…

Hibiscus flower pistil in top view with stamen and stigma
Oh! Yes!!! It is a red hibiscus flower smiling in my small hibiscus plant 🙂 
Red hibiscus flower with sticky stigma
This is the second flower that bloomed in my plant. Notice the stigma… For the first time I thought it is mutated… But, this flower is also with three conjoined stigmas (unlike the usual five) on the pistil tip! There is no end for creativity of nature!
