Hi Albert,
Another amazing image from your Reunion Is.
Everything is perfect here .... excellent exposure and sharpness.
The colours and patterns are stunning,not only on the plant,but also on the surrounding rocks.
Your composition is very good as well.
A brilliant shot!
Very well done!
Cheers & TFS

This pair of Stapelianthus decaryi looks beautiful, Albert.
As usual, you have captured them very well.
The image is so sharp and clear the subjects look really three dimensional.
Thanks for sharing it.

Bonjour Albert,
Très belle composition avec la présence de ces trois pierres s'opposant bien aux sujets qui eux sont photographiés sous un excellent angle de prise de vue leur donnant beaucoup de relief ; la lumière n'est pas en reste et contribue à l'appréciation de la finesse des détails et de la délicatesse des couleurs.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Bonjour Albert, quelle jolies fleurs et comme elles sont particulières. On croirait de petites urnes prêtes à être recueillies pour y mettre un nectar. Merci, j'ai regardé ta galerie et j'y ai trouvé plein d'information et de photos intéressantes et très belles. Merci!


Hello Albert, excellent close-up shot of these wonderful shaped flowers.
TFS and regards,

Hi Albert, a fine macro capture of these spectacular flowers in a fine composition with excellent clarity, nice DOF/POV and details.
TFS and have a nice WE!

Hello Albert,
A great capture of the flowers of this Asclepiadid from Madagascar and Réunion taken from a great POV to show the fascinating shape and colours with great clarity.
It would be interesting to see what insects it attracts.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Awesome job on this capture Albert. Spectacular DOF, focus, lighting and sharpness! Well Done!

Hi Albert.
I am impressed with your series, which I have missed. Pictured plant is so amazing as well as scenery. Surrounding stones are fine and underlines the beautifulness of the charming flowers. Quality of the shot is super. Lights and colours, sharpness and details (DOF is selected perfectly) are great. Bravo. Superb job.

Excelente enfoque y luz. Bien captados los detalles. Una fotografía "explosiva" y llena de vida.
Saludos Albert: Josep Ignasi.

really nice species, TFS Ori

Hi Albert

I have to say that I am absolutley fascinated by this plants in your collection. I don't think I have seeb anything like them before. I am struggling a touch with the scale but they look to be quite small but you have captured them beautifully and there is so much to see and so much detail to be seen in this photo. I love the colours in this picture.
