Wildflower Wednesday 11/23/2016

During a kayaking trip up the Wailua River in Kaua’i, Hawai’i I noticed these bright yellow flowers that speckled the shoreline. ¬†Our tour guide described them as “sunset” flowers because they start the day with a rich, yellow color, and end the day with a red-orange hue.
