Description

This diminutive endemic Hawaiian lobelia, Cyanea asarifolia, is now presumed extinct in the wild. It's range was restricted to the base of 3,000 ft. cliffs at the "Blue Hole" at the base of Mt. Wai`ale`ale, the rainiest spot on Earth. These plantlets, when grown to sufficient size in a greenhouse, may one day be planted back into this species' native range to attempt to reestablish a wild, self-sustaining population.
I paused the panorama after the first frame, and moved frame by frame with the "forward" button so that I could use manual focus. I went from 224 frames taken with the Canon S5-IS 8Mpixel camera in an earlier version, to 54 frames with my Olympus E-510 10 Mpixel DSLR in this one.
