This too is a beautiful specimen, Albert.
The image is so life-like it gives a three-dimensional impression.
These flowers are new for me and I am enjoying looking at them.
Thanks and regards.

Hi Albert.
Once more impressive shot of a fine plant. I love how well it looks on a stone. Lights and colours are great. But the most amazing it is sharpness. It is ultimate as well as DOF. Well done. TFS and my compliments.

Simply beautiful Albert.
These succulents have such incredible flowers.
I have seen some like these in the botannical gardens in Christchurch.
Great sharpness and colour.
Interesting notes too.
TFS & cheers,

Hello Albert,
A fine capture of this species of Aslepia flower shown well against the grey rock BG with excellent sharpness and nicely composed together with its water-conserving spikey foliage.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

great sharp pic, TFS Ori

Bonjour Albert,
Très belle publication valorisant bien le sujet.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Increible la belleza de estas plantas y lo bien que la captaste. Ya me sorprendieron el primer día que las vi. Como te dije, yo creo que conozco una sola especie que por cierto no has publicado aún. Bonita serie.
