Intresting veiw against the light it shows the delicate structure and colour of the flower, it would be good to see the flower with the light in another image so we can see the delicate flower structure hinted at by this image. TFS

I agree with Rob on the POV. However, this is also one of my favourite flowers and I would also like to see this light from another angle.

That's a very good shot of beautiful red disa!You've showed us impressive details with the help of back-light
Thnks for sharing
Its lovely with the backlight. One of our loveliest flowers to offer too. Great shot, Nico. Well done.
Nico, Your photo has good visual impact. Great color & the back-light shows-off the inner stamen & petal structure very nicely..The OOF BG & points of reflected light are pleasing to me also..I like it!

Beautiful disa uniflora, a misnomer, because you can get more than one flower on a stem, but this is even more rare. Did you get it on on of the climbs up the flat mountain? I love these and would like the oppertunity to nail some myself.
