While hiking by myself in the early morning at Volcanoes National Park, I came across several of these Ohi'a lehua bushes. Ohi'a are found on new lava and tend to be the most dominate tree in Hawaiian forests. The due hanging on each pedal was really awesome and gave it a frozen in time look. This flower added some simple, but magnificent color amongst this barren, black landscape.
