[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My previous photo was a macro of aconitum napelus. Here I show the meadow on which I foud it. I stepped in the meadow among the beautiful flowers. At that time I did not know how poisonous that Monk's hood flower was (Fevzi told me that they call it in Turkey "wolf poison") - even the rubbing of the plant on the skin brings tachicardia (fast beating). When I bend to shoot a macro, something prevented me. Something urged me to go out of the green on the path and take photos from there... Perhaps my senses could feel the danger of the plant and that was its defence against nibbling mammals...

Hello Anton,
Nature sometimes works in mysterious ways...
Pleasant image to show the location, colourful and attractive in many ways...
Good thing you got out, since this is the kind of stuff people react differently to!

Très joli paysage avec ce sous-bois et son beau tapis de fleurs a contre bas, la composition et les couleurs sont très jolies.
Bravo et merci....JP
